    Good job! Mountain Unicycling at Cold Springs, Santa Barbara, CA

    What a fun day!!! 200 miles of driving, to ride one of the best trails in SoCal, and maybe one of the best in the US!

    At the end of the video is a clip of me falling over an almost vertical embankment! First my Muni went over, then I tried to grab it, at which point I went into an an uncontrolled almost-free fall, desperately grasping at anything to slow me down, but it was totally useless! It had to be a good 100 feet down! It had to be nearly this steep: /

    You can actually hear the sounds of me falling, for what seems like an eternity! Luckily, I didn't hit any rocks on the way down, or end up mangled on some rock-filled ravine! It took me nearly 20 minutes to climb back up!

    Anyway, hope you enjoy. I must admit this time I rode a lot more than I filmed, but it should still give you a pretty good idea of the trail, both in technical and scenic terms.

    Cheers!
