Thumbs down Unicycle Pub Crawl - Not one of my better ideas!

Had a half baked idea of doing a unicycle pub crawl.

During my ride and testing the route / beers, I discovered that 'Faceplant' is a dish served with gravel.

As an event I dont think this one's a go'er.

Unhappy

I have found that beer and Uni do don't mix well. I think that I am as good of a rider drunk as I am sober. I think this until I go in for the kiss with the ground. I know all of this yet it doesn't stop the uni from coming out at every gathering with alcohol at my place. I never learn.

IME unicycle pub crawls tend to get to about one or two pubs before it reaches a really nice pub and everyone decides to stay put.

my fastest speeds on the ol' kh29Guni are always achieved on the way home from a good crawl.

pub-crawl = first time I could turn right.

Good times

Unicycle: the ultimate drunk riders cloaking device

Here in Portland the police do give tickets for drunken bike riding and its a bummer when that happens - really ruins the fun for a while and gets expensive.

However, I do think that the unicycle is the ultimate drunken riders/pub crawlers transport device . . . Local police that see you riding will likely either:
1. Assume that if you are on a unicycle and riding well, then you could not have been drinking because it takes so much balance to ride (yes, its the ultimate field sobriety test)

OR

2. If you are truly wobbling or face-planting a bit, its because you are riding a unicycle and its just plain hard to balance on a unicycle.

In either case, you aren't likely to get stopped and questioned - so have a few more beers and ride your uni home - wobbling or not.

In my experience, its not much more difficult to ride after some brews. The real danger comes from the lack of sound judgement. "I wonder how fast this thing will go?" Seemed like a perfectly reasonable question at the time. As it turns out my body went a bit faster than the uni. I got pretty lucky, some road rash on the palms and a scraped up knee. I wear gloves and helmet now, and now I do the drinkin after the ridin.

The uni is my preferred method of transportation, after a long night of drinking, past the time the last tram goes. Never had any problems with that.

I figure if you can't ride drunk, you can't ride at all.

Beers and Unicycling

In my experience the unicycle is a police magnet. It is something that piques everyones curiosity and the police always seem to come over and ask whats up so if they give tickets for bicycling while intoxicated I don't think that unicycling will be a good way to evade the ticket.

On the other hand when I was learning to unicycle I used to to do the two beer test. After I mastered a skill I would drink two beers wait half an hour and see if I could still perform. Great fun!

Here in Israel I have never heard of anyone getting a DWI while on a bycicle so the pub crawl would be in!

Would I be able to ride a fucking unicycle if I were too drunk?

I rode my uni while intoxicated once. Ended with an asphalt sandwich. Haven't done it since.
