Of all of the Colorado things I ever expected to see, this was definitely not one of them.

A man was spotted on a trail at Lory State Park outside of Loveland. The man was wearing a helmet and light hiking apparel when someone snapped a picture of him. Nothing unusual about any of that, the interesting part is this: the man took on the trail via unicycle.

Not just any unicycle though, a mountain unicycle. Shocking! I know. I had never even heard of the world wide sport of mountain unicycling, however it is apparently a very loved sport.

You can see a picture of the mountain unicycling man below.

If you know who this man is, please let me know because I've got a few questions:

  1. What happens when there's a drop off on the trail? How do you balance?!
  2. How cushiony are your biking shorts 'cause those trails aren't always the smoothest.
  3. How does one get into mountain unicycling because I feel like this is not just a sport people happen upon that easily. I went nearly 3 decades without ever hearing a word about it!

Anyway, if you are interested in mountain unicycling in Colorado, then watch what that's like below.
