The Riders

  • Daniel Burón

    Hometown: Cordoba, Andalusia

    Daniel is an industrial engineer, computer scientist, massagist, nutritionist and in my spare time unicycle adventurer. He has dedicated himself to many different jobs, such as performing illusionism, the stock market and even the fire juggling. This profile possibly explains that my current activities are working as blogger at Gizmodo and have my own business.

    First picking up unicycling in 2006 when he purchased a silver 20" unicycle in Berlin, he then become more serious upon returning to Spain in late 2009. Since then he has ventured out on many unicycle adventures.

The Route

The route I will follow in Santiaciclo is the “french way” from St. Jean Pied-de-Port, in France, to Muxia, in the West Coast of Galicia.

It will be more than 900km split into 35 stages with with a difference of raise and descent accumulated of more than 12,000m, with a minimum altitude of 190 and maximum of 1,500m.

Along the route I will encounter many different types of terrain: dirt, asphalt, mud, grass, gravel… I will try stay off-road more than 80% of the journey.​
