Riding since February 2003, Brian Schuster has been extensively involved in the
ISU Unicycle Club for the past two years. Gaining the ability to ride a
unicycle in around 30 minutes, he has steadily increased his ability to ride
over these past years. With experience on many trails in Iowa, Maine, Colorado
and Utah, Brian has rapidly developed the skills required by the challenging
sport of mountain unicycling.
Riding year round, he finds he enjoys riding the most in the winter since he
enjoys colder weather and the snow is an added challenge for him to ride on.
Becoming one of the lead unicyclists for the ISU Unicycle Club, Brian excelled
his skills by leading weekly rides at the nearby trails and testing his
abilities at every opportune moment.
A strong rider and an excellent choice to be part of this team, Brian will do
his best to succeed in this epic challenge. He is also an established rock
climber, mountain biker, mountaineer, and a regular outdoorsman.
