unicycled in the snow today

10 degrees and 1 inch of snow on the ground. I had fun unicycling in it. I stay very close to the house... You seem to get decent traction with all your weight over the wheel. Better than on my bicycle. I try not to make any quick turns...

Cool

I rode snow today and some ice on the 36" unicycle. I have 45 years experience riding in winter weather. Yes, the key is not making sharp turns especially on wet ice. It was 14 degrees with 2-3 inches of snow. Loads of fun!

Hello

A unicycle rider dressed as Darth Vader wearing a Santa hat took a ride in the snow

Me too, yesterday, and the day before, and the day before. I thought it would be hard, but it's not. If you have the right tire tread...

Weight over the wheel is imperative! Yes.
