Corona challenge: who is first in Brussels?

A virtual relay of the men against the women: who is first?

This year's biggest unicycle races (NKE and Unicon) have dropped out, and perhaps that gives you less motivation to go unicycle. Your youth circus or unicycle club is also likely to be closed.
But hey: outside unicycles, or somewhere inside on your own, you can still!

We offer an alternative: a virtual relay from Amsterdam to Brussels, so the capitals of the two countries we focus on. By "virtual" we mean: everyone drives on their own and in their own environment. We add up the distances as if you were driving a piece from Amsterdam to Brussels. The distance
is 222 km according to Google Maps (over bike paths). As you can see from the picture, we have built a special two-lane fast bike path – even at the border between the Netherlands and Belgium you can continu
e. The start is on Saturday 9 May at 10 am, so the moment when the NK Unicycles would be open. The total distances driven by men and women are kept daily on our website stichtingeenwieleren.nl, with the names of the participants (but no distance per person). Every meter counts, and you can participate every day! There are no prizes to be won. 🙁

How can you participate? Send an email to info@stichtingeenwieleren.nl in which you put the following
:1. Your name (If you don't want your name on the website, please add it, you will be listed as "Anonymous".)
2. Whether you're a man or a woma
n3. The distance you uni-cycled on that day (other day? please mention the date)
4. How you measured or estimated your dista
nce. More details are not needed, but it is nice for us to read.

NK Unicycles don't happen

With pain in our hearts, we made the difficult decision today not to allow the Dutch Unicycling Championship to go ahead on 9 May 2020.

We are very sorry, but we still think this is the most sensible choice, given the corona crisis. We do not think it is justified to organise an event with so many participants under these circumstances, precisely at the epicenter of the outbreak. We hope for your understanding of this difficul

t choice. We will refund the registration fee in full to all registered participants, in the bank account from whi

ch it was paid. We are currently looking at ways to keep the NKE in the summer or autumn, if by then the situation has clearly improved. We hope that we can all come together safely to enjoy the unicycle and enjoy each other. If there is more
known about this, you will of course read it in Unicycle News, and on the website

NKE 2020

On Saturday 9 May 2020 the next Dutch Championship Unicycling will take place. This year organized by a new team from the Stichting Eenwieleren Nederland. This year, the NKE will again be held at the Cor Vlemmix Circuit in Breda.

To participate in the NKE, you really don’t have to be super good. Anyone who can unicycle is welcome as a participant, it’s a very nice day to experience. 
Because it is an “open” championship, participants from abroad are also welcome. They just can’t become Dutch Champion. 

Admission is free for spectators and supporters/supporters.
