unicycles aren't for the faint of heart





leave it to kids to be up for anything! if anyone suggested to me that I should go try and ride a bike that has just one wheel implying all the while how much fun it would be, would I dare try it? actually I would. well, maybe. actually... I don't think so. though I do have a vague memory of trying to ride one as a kid. how about you, have you ever tried riding a unicycle?

this post is a part of my world tuesday. to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go here, thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, fishing guy, sylvia and louise.

Ah, yes, I did! But I got over it quickly and stayed away from them up until now and I don't really think there's any danger of me trying now. But, my kids have! Fun shot, Lily!
Love it!

Have a great weekend and Happy Thanksgiving!

No, no unicycles for me - why have one wheel when you can have two? And where do you hang your shopping? Very funny photo.

Riet said...

Everybody in my country has a bike and we all ride a bycicle but one wheel ??? I don't think so, maybe kids who want to try something different. :))
Thank you for your visit

Great photo!

Nope, never tried a unicycle; always avoided being asked...but I have contemplated how I would go about it. Need to be next to a very long handrail....

Rajesh said...

I have not done it so far. I may not dare to do it.

Tanya said...

What a great capture! And no, I've never ridden one and never had the urge to try as I know I'd end up like that kid on the ground,lol....seems starting would be the hardest part.

Jossie said...

I never tried. I leave that to circus artists.

Never tried a unicycle. Never had that opportunity. I think I would have if given the chance. I tried just about everything else. I was a real tomboy.

Fun to watch but afraid to try.

Paz said...

I'm not that brave to try to ride a unicycle. Maybe when I was younger. Not anymore.... ;-)

Babzy said...

That was one of my dream but really too hard to ride .. i admire those who can !

Alexa said...

Great shot—hope the kid on the ground is laughing, not crying! Never had the balance needed for a unicycle, or a pogo stick, or a skateboard, or . . .

Daryl said...

I love that he is laughing

Happily Retired Gal said...

I've never tried one and probably never will ... at least in THIS lifetime ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Hugs and blessings,

He is having fun, I do not think I would ever try. I would leave that to the kids.

Janie said...

I'd kill myself, I'm sure.
But it's fun to watch others attempt the daring feet. Cute photo of the kids.
