If it involves wheels and leg power, it probably involves Al Brody. This avid local cyclist has done it all - recumbent tandem riding, even an Aqua Skipper, a machine that you pedal on top of the water. So we weren't surprised when Brody told us that he was taking a unicycle down the Pikes Peak Highway.
Here's a photo of Brody, at the back, riding a Coker 36" Big One unicycle with no brakes. In front is Joshua Torrans on a custom 24" off-road Hunter MUni with Magura hydraulic brakes with steel braided hose. The cyclists were with a group from Challenge Unlimited, the company that guides mountain bike groups down the highway.
