"George Peck, a soft spoken magistrate living in Seward, Alaska is credited with giving birth to the sport of Mountain Unicycling. In 1990 he created a video tape giving tips and techniques that he'd learned on his own and interest in the sport grew quickly." - UNICYCLE.COM

George Peck’s ground-breaking video gradually went out of print and nearly vanished altogether. No master copy existed and the picture quality of the VHS duplications suffered accordingly.

In 2011, his son Kristopher Peck reconstructed the film by utilizing footage from the original 8mm tapes and synchronized it with George’s narration and guitar soundtrack.

Although the restoration was a time consuming process, it doesn't compare to difficulty and frustration of the original linear tape-to-tape editing system that George used in 1990.

Feedback:

"This is a huge contribution to keeping the history of our sport alive and available for anyone to see."

Mountain Unicyclist and World Trials Champion

"Woohoo! Awesome! This video is what got me into unicycling back in 1997, so I couldn't be happier that is restored and REALLY am looking forward to the release. "
