Why do I unicyclE ?
To me riding a normal bicycle feels like a meditation. I would just let myself go following a path.
Even while not being a very sporty person i do enjoy activities that make me focus on the moment. With a bike, that only happens at the times, and learning extreme mountain biking doesn’t call my attention. As with the unicycle, every movement counts, even the slightest turn affects your path and a little pebble can be a potential challenge. It forces the rider to pay attention to the smallest terrain change making the whole a ride a strategy game.
