Yunnanuni - Muni trip through South Western China

If you're feeling like doing something a little challenging this year, how about unicycling through South-Western China?

Ken Looi is organising the Yunnan Unicycle Tour (aka Yunnanuni), in the mountains near Tibet. Participants will be riding from the Tibetan town of Shangri-La, through a few mountain passes and finishing at the Tiger Leaping Gorge above the Yangzi River. It's going to be pretty mountainous but with lots of amazing scenery.

If you're interested, check out the Yunnanuni website.

Dates: 8-19 August 2011

Included: support vehicles, local guide, tour leader, most meals, spare bicycles

Group Size: maximum 20

Days Unicycling: 7

Cost: US$1900

Distance: approx 410km

Difficulty: depends if you like hills!

Unicycling Conditions : sealed roads all the way but all at altitudes from 1900m to 4200m - you need to be prepared for mostly uphill or downhill riding and a lack of oxygen.

For those of you who missed Ken Looi's Mongolia Unicycle Tour last year, check out the photos and videos of that tour!

Australian Records

The International Unicycling Federation (IUF) define the standard rules for competitions. The AUS follow these rules for UniNats, wherever possible.

The AUS keeps a list of the records held by Australians (citizens and permanent residents) in IUF-style events, both in Australia and around the world.

We update these results for AUS Uninats records and do our best to update them for records set at Unicon, but we can't always know about every Australian in every official event, so please let us know if you think a record is out of date. Contact Us with details of any updates and include a link to independent evidence (e.g. the website with event results).

Records:  As of 8th October 2016.

Australian Unicycle Society - Uninats 2010 - Canberra - 1-4 October

Uninats is the Australian National Unicycle championships and festival, the biggest event on the local unicycling calendar, so put it in your diary, and spread the word!

We are trying to make this one a significant Canberra event- encouraging spectators to come and watch and be wowed, Events are being held all over Canberra so you'll need transport- there should be enough people with cars to give lifts to those without so we will set up car pooling to make sure no-one gets left behind.
