Hilarious! it's the addiction of one wheel! Although you make it sound funny, your wife has my respect, as I am sure, yours also.

General public ofen say to me, 'Why do you do it?' I say, 'It's the sensation of balance'. It is the 'one-ness' of balance with the unicycle that does not appear in other forms of pedalling transport'.

Good luck to your wife, and you, with your practice!

I'm jealous of you. My wife will NEVER try to ride. If it is up to her, I'd sell them all.

I had been riding a 36er for about a year, then spent about 4 months seriously training for the distance. I got to where 50-60 mile rides were (relatively) comfortable and then had a chance to complete a century as part of a large organized ride.

But why did you do it? Because you want to prove to yourself you could ride such a long time? How much more of a kick does it give when you can already ride 60 miles? You've proven that you can ride. At some point, riding a uni becomes as easy as riding a b*ke. The only difference being that riding a uni gives a better feeling of course, which makes peeps addicted. Nevertheless I will never feel this urge to ride 100 miles or 100kms for that matter.
