  • Unicycle Lover

    You know if there is going to be a “bicycle” race this weekend (as there is every weekend in summer) I really don’t appreciate the Military excluding those who unicycle professionally. This so called “bicycle” race is a slap in the face to taxpaying unicycle professionals who risk their lives every single weekend (literally every weekend) to compete. Since the government Arlington has trapped us in our homes this Saturday I will boycott the race! I am calling on all unicycle lovers to come out this weekend and show your support for unicycles everywhere….oh wait that’s right we can’t go out because the STREETS ARE CLOSED! Thank you again Arlington stepping on the little people and forgetting those who ride unicycles, I will remember this when I pay my personal property tax on my unicycle…till next time!
