The Uninam is a 500km Unicycle Tour in March 2008. Thirty unicyclists from around the world will be riding through Vietnam, starting from Hanoi in the North, to Ho Chi Minh City in the South, all on one wheel!  Follow their adventures as they travel across this amazing country.

We've survived Uninam!

March 20th, 2008
The Uninam riders arrived safely in Ho Chi Minh City last night, the official finish of the tour.  It was a tough tour, but we had a fantastic time...

From the sweat, saddle sores and scorching heat; to the sight of kids chasing us across Vietnam....it was certainly an event to remember.  Thanks to all 26 riders from 7 countries for making such a ridiculous concept possible.  What a sight it was to have you riding through Vietnam on one wheel!  It was a pleasure to have been part of it all.

Updates of the final two days will be available shortly.
