    Unicycles - History
    A unicycle is a one-wheeled vehicle with a frame that sits above the wheel and a seat that sits on top of the frame. Unicycles are believed to have been adapted from the Penny Farthing - the world's first bicycle . These bicycles had a large wheel in front, to which the pedals were attached, and a much smaller wheel behind for balance . When these bicycles hit a bump, or the rider attempted to slow down suddenly, the rear wheel would come off the ground, forcing the rider to balance on the one wheel.

    Thank You!
    Once again, the 2010 Berkeley Juggling and Unicycling Festival was a tremendous success. We're loving the new venue and what a fantastic show! We had another big year: more than 400 people contributed to the playful atmosphere in Jacket Gym, with nearly 500 people packing into the Florence Schwimley Little Theater for Saturday night's Variety Show. The Festival would not be possible without the contributions of our organizing committee , public show performers , fire show performers workshop leaders, vendors , raffle sponsors , friends at the Berkeley Unified School District, and you, our loyal attendees, whose smiles and goodwill make all the effort worthwhile. We would also like to extend a very special thank you to Camp Winnarainbow , for non-profit assistance. See you next year!

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search A Torker unicycle A unicycle is a human-powered single-track vehicle with one wheel. Unicycles resemble bicycles , but are less complex.
    edit History
    One theory of the advent of the unicycle stems from the popularity of the penny-farthing (or "Ordinary") during the late 19th century. Since the pedal and cranks were connected directly to the front axle, the rear wheel would go up in the air and the rider would be moved slightly forward. Many penny-farthing owners discovered they could dispense with the frame and just ride the front wheel and handlebars. Evidence for this theory of development can reportedly be found in pictures from the late 19th century showing unicycles with large wheels. Over the years, unicycle enthusiasts have inspired manufacturers to create new designs, such as seatless (" ultimate wheel ") and tall ("giraffe") unicycles. During the late 1980s some extreme sportsmen took an interest in the unicycle and started off-road unicycling (MUni(Mountain Unicycling)).
    edit Construction

    Riding a unicycle up and down mountains requires the balance of a gymnast and the temperament of a teenager
    by Michael Finkel

    W HY the red unicycle was left in the Seward, Alaska, dump and what inspired George Peck's wife, Carol, to bring it home are both unclear. "I'm a salvager and recycler," is all she will say. "She's a dump rat," Peck says. Carol put the unicycle in the garage, and Peck found it there. This was almost fourteen years ago. His life hasn't been the same since.
    "I glom on to things," Peck says. "He gets obsessed," Carol says. Peck taught himself to ride the red unicycle no books, no instructors. He practiced daily for more than a month before he could wobble up and down his driveway. Then he attempted to take the unicycle onto the roads. Riding a unicycle is as precarious as it looks the "cone of balance," as Peck calls it, is extraordinarily precise. A pebble can be enough to put you on your back. So can a patch of sand or a gust of wind or a crack in the pavement. This may be why the red cycle was tossed into the dump: Seward is possibly the worst spot on the planet in which to ride a unicycle. The place is all sand and gusts and cracks, not to mention ice and snow and logs and boulders and mountains.
    Return to Flashback: Weird Sports
    Peck learned to ride his unicycle under all conditions. He discovered how to make the cycle hop, and he honed the skill until he could pop over logs two feet in diameter. He figured out how to power through boulder fields, how to jump up and over picnic tables, how to turn in ankle-deep mud. He became skilled at riding in dried-out riverbeds, across frozen lakes, up mountain trails, and through wind-crusted snow. This is clearly not what unicycles were designed to do. When the red unicycle fell apart, Peck drove to Anchorage and bought a new one. When that broke, he ordered another. After a dozen more were destroyed, he began designing his own.

    UNICYCLING (Click photos to enlarge) Teaching students to ride unicycles may seem daunting to teachers. However, it can be taught quite effectively by teachers with knowledge of basic progressions. It should be understood that these skills usually take more time to learn than juggling and manipulative skills. Students may not experience success as quickly as in other activities, but the rewards of conquering these challenging skills are substantial. There will always be a handful of students who make unicycling their mission. Safety Considerations If you are a Physical Education teacher, think of these skills as similar to gymnastics in terms of class routines and safety procedures. Students should always be supervised when practicing, and should be taught how to spot each other. Horseplay should never be tolerated. People often perceive unicycling as risky, maybe because they have seen a daredevil performer who rode (seemingly) out of control, or on a very tall unicycle. The result is an unfounded perception of high risk. The reality is that when basic safety procedures are followed, unicycle riding is actually safer than riding bicycles, skateboards, and in-line skates. This is because unicycles do not permit the rider to coast or achieve high speeds. Although mild bumps and scrapes do sometimes occur, teachers can minimize this occurrence by requiring students to wear kneepads and gloves while practicing. Many schools also use helmets. Today, helmets are inexpensive and lend an air of safety and forethought to peoples' perceptions of unicycling in a school environment.

    What Is Unicycling?
    By Marcas Grant eHow Contributor I want to do this! What's This? What Is Unicycling? Pando Hall/Getty Images Anyone can ride a bicycle, but who can ride a unicycle? It turns out that anyone can enjoy riding on one wheel just as well as two. Unicycles have been around for many decades, but they have recently begun to pick up steam as an organized recreation. Clubs have begun to flourish, and different disciplines have emerged to create a tight-knit, colorful unicycling community.
  • There is no definitive history on when and where unicycling began, but it is widely believed that the unicycle evolved from the penny-farthing bicycles of the late-19th century. The bicycles had large front wheels and small back wheels with a crank that connected directly to the front axle. If a rider stopped quickly, the back wheel would rise into the air. Skilled riders learned that they could ride a little farther on the front wheel only. Pictures of early unicycles had big wheels, adding more support to the theory.
  • Types
  • There are several different types of unicycles, each with a different purpose. Standard unicycles are basic unicycles with medium-sized wheels that allow for average speed but more maneuverability. Cruisers have a larger wheel and are built for speed and for riding along a road. As the name would suggest, a giraffe unicycle is taller than the rest, though the frame is not made to handle a lot of abuse. A mountain unicycle, or muni, has a wheel that can vary in size from 24 to 29 inches. It also has a more rugged frame to handle the abuse of riding on uneven terrain. For riders looking for a greater challenge, there are ultimate wheel and impossible wheel unicyclesboth of which are simply wheels without frames or seats.

    I have gone through all articles related to Unicycling from the rec.juggling archives and culled what I felt was useful and interesting information which all beginning unicyclists would like to know. This is a big document, probably of interest only to those who cannot yet ride a uni. Because of its size, I have divided it into four stages and you could maybe read this document in stages. -Ram Prasad Begin Part 1 of this document
    there are 2 things to remember when trying to learn to ride 1. you must keep your weight on the seat, NOT on the pedals. 2. sit up very very straight, as if the seat post is going straight up your ass into your back (look at the great riders, that is how they look) other things: when you start the pedals should be almost on a horizontal plane,and your f first leg "stroke" will be to push down. getting on with one pedal up and one down ensures you of severely whipping a pedal around into your shin when you make that first step on. a good idea in any case is to wear nice padded hightops and kneesox and long pants and chainmail. then, when you start going, KEEP PEDALING. forward momentum is critical. when you are riding you (and the uniseat and fork etc.) will be leaning very slightly forward, which is the direction you are traveling.

You can see the full slide show from the last camp (2007) here ...and the video from the follow-up trip is below: People often ask me "How long have you been riding that". I generally answer in terms of minutes or hours reflecting how long I have been on that particular ride. Some people find this funny, but I honestly prefer the looks on the faces of the people who just barely seem to miss it. If you were one of those people, let me apologize now.... (shame on me!) I have actually been riding unicycles for a long time; longer than I care to admit. While away at college, my unicycle often served as my primary transportation. It was common for me to ride a small 16 inch wheel down to the local Wal-mart for supplies. Other people want to know what got me started. I was first introduced to unicycling by a bunch of clowns at a clown party (believe it or not.) I found I was able to master a twenty foot ride with just a couple tries and a wall to lean on. I told my mtoher I was going to get me one and learn how to ride it. Early the very next morning I was driving her to work and spotted a pawn shop with a unicycle in the window. I went back later that day and traded some old electronics I had for what became my first unicycle. I still have it, but it's become a bit of a Franken-cycle with the various repairs made to it over the years. I don't ride it any more and often wonder how I ever put up with that horrible seat...

    Instead of national events for the USA, Canada and the rest of North America, we have NAUCC. Held annually in a different location each year, it's sponsored by the Unicycling Society of America. Activities include:
    • Artistic competition
    • Workshops
    • Track Racing
    • Shows
    • Social events
    • MUni Competitions and fun rides
    • Street, Trials and Flatland Comps
    • Road Races and fun rides
    • Lots of other events
    Don't miss U Games! This is the name given to the 2010 NAUCC by it hosts, the Berkeley Unicyclists. Plans are being set for our location in Berkeley, California and will include events in San Francisco and around the Bay area. This will be the first-ever USA event in Northern California. Attending a North American Unicycling Convention and Championships is an eye-opening experience, as you see people do things on a unicycle you would never imagine. It is an excellent learning experience. Do not let the words "North American" deter you from attending or participating in competition. Most events are open to riders of all levels and everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in competitive events, as well as the other activities at the convention. One of the greatest benefits of the attending NAUCC is the opportunity to meet other unicyclists, not just from the US but often from around the world. You will learn some new skills, and make lots of new friends.
