Time Out says
Prepare for some one-wheel madness! the NYC Unicycle Festival is spreading out all over the city with long rides and lots of adventure.
For far too long people have looked down upon the unicycle, ridiculing riders for how silly they look perched up high above a single wheel. It's time that one-wheel lovers unite and take over the streets of New York! That's just what the NYC Unicycle Festival is planning to do. There's going to be a ride from Battery Park up to Central Park on Thursday, a parade through Brooklyn on Friday (from Brooklyn Bridge to Coney Island) and an entire weekend of celebration on Governors Island. Witness some unicycle sumo, unicycle basketball and top riders performing tricks as DJ Sky King provides a soundtrack.
