C2C – One Heart One Wheel

One Heart One Wheel is a group organised by Jerry Stokes, raising money for the British Heart Foundation through unicycling events.

During the last week of August 2010, eight unicyclists, including myself, rode the 140 mile Coast to Coast route from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Roker Pier in Sunderland. 35 miles per day would be almost trivial on a bike, but that’s 4 or 5 hours in the saddle on a unicycle. For comparison, my normal commuting week is less than 30 miles in the saddle, even if you include the unicycle hockey practice. To get myself up to the required level of fitness, I increased my commuting distance to about 15 miles per day, and I did a 30-40 mile ride every weekend. Your sponsorship will go to a very deserving cause.

The rest of the C2C unicycle riders are:
