Conquering Pikes Peak

It was just a few years ago that the powers that be opened the Pikes Peak Highway to cyclists. Now, a 13-year-old has done the 12 mile climb to the top. In eight hours. On a unicycle. And he's only been riding a unicycle for three months. That is amazing. I have no desire to try it on two wheels, let alone one. More power to this kid. That is an awesome accomplishment!
On Sunday, Levi took on Pikes Peak, with mom following behind on her bike.

Yes it is! I like riding a bike but not to that extent.

I have no aspirations to try it, not even on two wheels.

@ilocosboy - I don't even think I could do it on my mountain bike.

I know. My hat is off to him. If I wore hats, that is.

@teamfreak16 I wonder if he will continue on conquering big feats like this as he gets older, that's awesome. My hat too (except I usually don't wear the either.)

I know. I probably couldn't do it on my mountain bike, let alone a unicycle.

How in the heck can anyone on a unicycle make that climb? This kid must have the strongest legs in the world. I can't imagine it.

I know. It's not like the unicycle has gears to make it easier.

@teamfreak16 The ability to maintain balance has to be extraordinary and to chug up steep inclines.

Eight hours is a long time, especially on that climb.

Quite a impressive feet. I can walk or ride a bike a long distance, but hills or mountains will take my breath quickly.

Especially this climb. I've heard it's pretty nasty.
