Ashley Foster

Hometown: currently Oakland, CA USA

Age on tour: sshhhh!

Number of Years Unicycling: 10

Reason for touring: The French women I met in Laos. Their tales led me to decide that my next good trip would be to Mongolia, and look, here’s a unicycle tour! Couldn’t be better!

Where’s your other wheel?: I don’t need the training wheel anymore.

Best thing about my unicycle: I get to ride it.

The thing I’m looking forward to most on Monguni: Saying ‘I’m so hungry I could eat a horse’.

Hidden talent (doesn’t have to be unicycle related): I can make my face totally flat.

Riding food: Sushi. I crave sushi when I ride long distances.

Favourite superhero: I am *done* with superheros.

How many unicyclists does it take to change a lightbulb? Just one if there’s a giraffe handy.
