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. To kick things off, the fest will take over Manhattan, from Battery Park to Central Park, on September 1 (10:30am-3pm) and will move on to Brooklyn on September 2 (2-6pm) from Brooklyn Bridge to Coney Island, and then onto Queens on September 3 (noon-5pm) from Seven Gables Playground to Cunningham Park, Queens, where you can mountain unicycle, learn to ride, play unicycle basketball and more. It’ll finish up on September 4 (1-5pm) at Grant’s Tomb with a casual day of rolling. UniFest has something for everyone, from long-time unicycle enthusiasts to first-time thrill-seekers; and from unicycle basketball to scavenger hunts. It’s fun, it’s free and all ages and abilities are welcome to attend.
