On the 1st and 2nd of September 2007, Irene Genelin, Joe Lind and Dan Hansen of Minnesota completed their qualifying ride for Ride The Lobster, making them the first to successfully complete the unicycling requirements for entry to this 800km race, next June 2008 in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Genelin, Lind and Hansen started on Saturday morning, punishing themselves on short, steep hills for the first half of the day then “relaxing”with some flat riding to round out the day. On day two, the riders completed 85k of flat riding.
According to the riders “It was a weekend of flawless riding, super weather, great company and only a bit of rumbling muscles … Looking forward to Nova Scotia!!”
