Cheerio chaps, it’s been great!

Hi everyone! Leo Hawkes here, Voodoos smallest (and probably quietest) member.

Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the many people involved, for the many great times I have had unicycling. Demos, roadtrips, unicycling weekends away etc.  There are too many to list!

Time has come for me to move on from voodoo, every rider reaches a stage in their life when they know how much time they can devote to their hobby. Unfortunately these days I can spare very little time to riding, and maybe it is because i see it that way, a hobby. I enjoy recreational riding when I can but in all honesty that is less than once a month, perhaps sometimes less than once every 6 months. As for time I can dedicate to riding for demos, even less so, especially as demos most often span over entire weekends.

A part of me leaving is influenced by my brother leaving in November, when Edd started Voodoo in 2008 it was little more than a bunch of friends riding unicycles to show what could be done, which of course grew into what you know as Voodoo these days. I enjoyed those simple times, rarely money was made from a demo (I remember being paid in beer once, from a small demo for an off-licence Aj organised) but most of the stuff we did was for as much fun as it was anything. Either way, the part that means I would be able to spend time hanging around with my brother, messing around on our single wheels would no longer exist.

Furthermore, and mainly, as most of my time is taken up studying Arboriculture at Northampton University, I hope to go on to develop a career once I have graduated, which would still not enable me the time that a role at Voodoo would require. I like to think that Voodoo play an important role in promoting unicycling, which inherently involves a dedicated role, I feel it is important the Voodoo members are fully committed, which unfortunately I am not able to commit the time and dedication necessary.

I wish the team all the best for the future and would like to leave them a little nostalgic thought in the form of mine and Edds first video, shot back in 2006-7, almost 7 years ago!

Cheerio chaps, it’s been one hell of a ride. Leo
