Default How long between stops?


I was just curious how far/ long people out there went while riding
between a brake on easy to moderate ground?

I rode in Critical Mass Pittsburgh last week and went the 12-13 mile
distance (bit under 2 hrs) (24" wheel gazz tire) non stop it was
difficult but the Viscount seat made it feel real nice

So how long/ far do you go between breaks?!?

Time is perhaps the indicator rather than distance, oh iron-crotched
one. Your two hours in a Viscount saddle is an impressive feat, indeed.
I can go the first hour non-stop if I have to but after that I stop more
frequently. We went on a 22 mile ride Saturday and stopped constantly
but it wasn't a race against time or each other.

I am wearing a MUni Militia T-Shirt as I type this, by the way. Thanks
again for your artistic contribution to the unicycling community. When I
wear this shirt I am invincible.

Perhaps MUni Militia shorts would be a good idea too then.

I can normally go about ten miles (1:45 - 2:00 hours) on my 24 inch
Stealth Torker/127's. I don't know how much further I could go, but I
plan to find out one day.

My personal best is a shade over 20 miles (20.05? 32km) in one go,
which took about 1 hour 55. That was on a Coker, Viscount seat, plus
handle.

A typical 'distance ride' starts with approximately an hour without
breaks. After that, breaks get closer and closer together as the day
progresss and my crotch deteriorates.

The Viscount and Miyata seem pretty similar for these long stints in the
saddle.

So how long/ far do you go between breaks?!?

I can go up to two hours before the first break, based
on a couple of rides, but my preference is probably
to stop more often. After the first long non-stop
period, the breaks are much more frequent.

Wearing cycling shorts (and a MUni militia shirt) generally doubles the
time I can go without stopping, and makes it much nicer. I've found
that to stop the circulation problem, if I ride one-foot for a while or
put all my weight on my KH seat hadle with my arms and lift myself out
of the saddle for a few minutes, I can ride much longer without
stopping. I'd give you actual numbers, but my breaks generally come
with UPD's.

I am modeling the MUni Militia T-shirt and the Tangerine Dream unicycle
'HERE!' (http://staff.washington.edu/gharper/tdream.htm) Hopefully
someone will provide a photo with higher resolution.
