Unicycle 200 miles. Save The Children

Hello Im Ollie Green, last year I taught my self to ride a unicycle. Over 6 days starting on 10th April I will ride from coast to cost across the south of Scotland right through the Borders, I will stretch my journey over 200 miles, hoping to raise a total of £10,000 for I will Save The Children Syrian Crisis Appeal, i’ll do it unaided with no support. carrying a tent, sleeping bag and clothes with me. As much as this is for a very serious cause, I don’t think you can take anyone on a unicycle too serious, I’m hoping to make people laugh and smile along the way. I have a huge amount of training and fundraising to do, as well as allot of picking my self up after falling off
