Unicycle world record attempt rides into Toowoomba
SAMUEL Johnson might be the most passionate man on one wheel.
The well-known Home and Away actor is in Toowoomba today to, in his own words, "badger people about boobs".
Mr Johnson is coming through the Garden City on his 15,000km unicycle journey around Australia to raise one million dollars for breast cancer research.
He spoke about his journey, made in tribute to his terminally ill sister Connie, at a Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce and Industry breakfast this morning.
"I've been snaking my way up from New South Wales - it's been quite mountainous.
"That's ensured that I've earned it on my way to Toowoomba.
"Breast cancer's a serious issue, and we were keen to keep it light.
"We needed something unique if we wanted to have a chance to raise a million dollars - let's face it, just about everybody has walked it, ridden it or run it."
