One of my social media friends tipped me off about this, and there has hardly been any coverage in Alabama about this, the only thing I found was this article from Cullman Today.
Ed Pratt from the United Kingdom is currently on a 18,000 mile, round-the-world ride, all done on a unicycle! His goal is to become the first person ever to officially circumnavigate the globe on one wheel. While doing the around the world unicycle ride, Ed is also raising money for and awareness for School in a Bag, which is an initiative run by the Piers Simon Appeal. School in a Bag provide aid, in the form of SchoolBags, to poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. Each SchoolBag is filled with stationery equipment and resources that will enable a child to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and, above all, learn.
If you are wondering how Ed Pratt is riding a unicycle while carrying his equipment, watch a video from him below on how he does it.
As of this post, Ed Pratt is riding down US 278 and nearing Piedmont, AL.
