. News on the Singapore team will be well covered with the additional blog from ‘Juggling Mike’ as he covers Ride The Lobster and its 800km 5-day adventure through Nova Scotia.

He writes in a recent post ” … I think we will have a really good time crossing Nova Scotia. I’m greatly looking forward to hanging out with unicyclists from around the world and hopefully making new friends. There is still a week left of anticipation before I head off to Nova Scotia, but every day I think about riding the lobster!”

Are they ready to go up against the best in the world in the 800km 5-day, Ride The Lobster unicycle event in Nova Scotia? There are no 36″ers in Singapore. They’ll have to work harder on their smaller-wheeled machines. The Southeast Asian heart, however, beats strong and proud with this determined Singaporean team from the tropics.

RTL sponsor, Nova Scotia’s Port Royal Inn from Annapolis Royal has adopted this team from Singapore.

District of Lunenburg Logo The New Germany Check Point Committee is planning to ring the bells of the local churches when the first riders enter the community of New Germany. This is a small town in Nova Scotia falls along the Valley-Lighthouse Stage 2 of Ride The Lobster, the 800km 5-day unicycle race set in Nova Scotia for 16-20th June 2008. The town is known for its surrounding farmlands and rolling forested lands. New Germany falls within the District of Lunenburg, the third largest District in Nova Scotia.

The Committee invites or challenges all of the other Stage participants along the route to do the same — to let the riders know, let the community know, let the world know that the race has arrived in your community!

. A Message from The Mayor

Ride the Lobster – who would have thought it would be the catch phrase for June 2008!

On behalf of the Council for the Town of Annapolis Royal, I would like to welcome all participants in this event to our historic Town, which marks the end of one stage of your race and the beginning of the next. Your time among us is short but I hope you have an opportunity to take in some of the natural beauty through which you are riding. We have much to offer in this area but you will have to come back again to savor it all and we hope you do so.

May your Ride the Lobster be a trip of a lifetime!

Jane DeWolfe
Mayor, Town of Annapolis Royal

Can a millimetre make a difference in the international 800km 5-day unicycle race, Ride The Lobster, set for 16-20 June 2008, in Nova Scotia, Canada? It just might, according to tests by Kyle deMilner, a member of Team No.86 Team Unicycle Max, the only all-family team in this event, as he reports his findings in a newly-created blog.

Visit the Team Unicycle Max Blog, to learn about hubs, cranks, 36″ers, training or lack thereof, and the crustacean-shaped Canadian providence called Nova Scotia, and perhaps adopt this team when the bets are placed.
