Other riding activities will include:

High Jump
Long Jump

Flatland Area

Venue

The venue will be the amazing Radical Bikes located near Chelmsford, Essex.
We used Radical Bikes last year and the venue couldn't have been better. Rad has the biggest permanent trials course in the UK which gets moved around every year to keep things fresh. As well as the permanent obstacles, we'll be adding our own and modifying some of the course to make it extra challenging for unicycles. The course is graded according to the difficulty level of the obstacles, so don't worry if you've only just learnt to jump or have been riding trials for 20 years, there is something for everyone.

Entertainment

As well as fun unicycle games in the evenings, we will have a band on Saturday evening for your entertainment. Again, this is at no extra charge and is included in the price of a weekend ticket.

 

We're stoked to have Inlak'esh playing for us on Saturday evening.

Inlak'esh are a four piece instrumental acoustic band from Milton Keynes, UK, who work tirelessly on creating succulent, ear pleasing yet hard hitting grooves, delivering distinctive albeit confusingly intricate Spanish scale to Arabian influenced melodies and evoking rhythmical senses with punctuated pauses and timely grabs to create shock and awe.

Once the ear drums adjust to the fact there are no vocals the toes start tapping, the heads get nodding and the room begins to move to the charm of this multiculturally influenced melting pot of sound. 

 

Check out their sound below then go and give them a follow on Facebook. Get your dancing shoes on!
