Shannon MacLachlan


Hometown – Vancouver BC Canada

Age on tour – 33

Number of Years Unicycling – Does living with a unicyclist count?

Reason for touring – I want to go to Mongolia!

Wheres your other wheel? – On the back of my bike

Best thing about my unicycle – It comes with 2 wheels

The thing I’m looking forwards to most on Monguni – checking out the landscape and meeting the people

Hidden talent – I can raise my left eyebrow… all by itself.

Riding food: chocolate, nuts, and chocolate

Favourite superhero: Brew the superdog

How many unicyclists does it take to change a lightbulb? About 60+1. 60 people to hop around on “cool lines” and one person on a bike to get the job done.
