    What is MUni?
    MUni stands for Mountain Unicycling. It's also known as Rough Terrain Unicycling, All Terrain Unicycling, or even UMX. Like mountain biking, you don't need a mountain to do it. It's just the act of riding unicycles off road. MUni has been a sort of revolution in the unicycling community, sparking a tremendous effort to build better, stronger unicycles. Some of this new technology will of course spread to other types of unicycles as time goes by. There is just something satisfying about taking a unicycle, an inherently unstable vehicle, and riding it in places nobody thought it could go. These early years of MUni have showed vast strides in the types of terrain that can be successfully ridden by unicycle. Certainly anyplace a bike can go, a unicycle can follow. And we can still turn sharper, and fit through narrower spaces than the bikes! This site is intended as a resource area for MUni, as well as an information point for the

    1. What is Mountain Unicycling?
    Mountain Unicycling(MUni for short this name was coined by Duncan Castling and is a trademark of Pashley Cycles) is the art of riding off- road on uneven terrain such as grass, dirt, rock, ice, snow, etc.
    2. Why Mountain Unicycle?
    Mountain Unicycling is a challenging and rewarding sport. It combines the finesse and precision required to stay on one wheel with the sheer power and endurance required to ride over rough terrain. Mountain Unicycling teaches balance, quick reaction time and concentration. Physically, mountain unicycling is an incredibly challenging sport. Unicycles are direct drive, so it is impossible to coast. That means you are always pedaling, uphill and downhill, which adds up to a good workout. You will certainly get in good shape after a few days of MUniing. Mountain Unicycling is especially attractive if you live far from trails. A unicycle will fit in any trunk, while most bicycles require expensive and annoying racks. You can take a unicycle almost anywhere you go. Most of all, MUniing is fun! It is a good chance to spend some time out doors among nature and have a blast doing it.

    Mountain Unicycling, Santa Cruz Ca., 03/20/99 Daniel, Geoffrey, Nathan, John, Bruce, Matt Here is a photo of the group of Mountain Unicyclists that gathered in Santa Cruz on March 20th, 1999 to ride some of the local trails in the surrounding mountains. (I'm on the far right, hiding behind a branch). I origianlly met this group through the internet back in 1997; and first met them face to face while attending the "Muni" (mountain unicycle) weedend at Northstar Tahoe. This group meets monthly to ride different trails in different locations in the west. My thanks go out to John Foss for his efforts coordinating and planning the monthly events! This shot was taken at the beginning of the trail. The area we were riding through is mountain lion country as can be seen by the warning sign in the photo. I must confess that out of this group I was the most inexperienced mountain unicyclist of the bunch, and I found myself typically at the back of the pack. There was one point on the trail where I was a few hundred yards behind the group and out of their sight while traveling up up a muddy stretch of road. While I was going along, I noticed large paw prints, clearly from a full grown mountain lion who had passed by just a few moments before our arrival. (Actually I believe the rest of the group was driving him along in front of the group). It was kind of creepy to realize that by being the straggler I must have appeared as the "sickly" straggler of the prey. For a little while, I felt as though I must have had a "free lunch" sign around my neck as far as my position on the food chane is concerned.

    Mountain unicycling
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Mountain unicycling (also known as MUni ) is a sport which invloves riding unicycles off-road. Mountain unicycling usually takes place on mountain unicycles , which are equipped with fat tires and rugged frames for off-road cycling. Regular unicycles are also commonly used in mountain unicycling, since mountain unicycles are relatively rare. Mountain unicycles can be ridden on the same terrain as a mountain bike . Mountain unicycling is a slower-paced sport that mountain bicycling , since unicycles are more difficult to ride than bicycles, and cannot coast.
    Each year, many unicyclists gather for the California Mountain Unicycle Weekend.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A unicycle is a one-wheeled, human powered vehicle . Unicycles are similar to, but less complex than, bicycles Unicycles are made from a few key parts: the wheel and axle , the frame, the seat, and the cranks and pedals. The wheel is the main part of the unicycle; it is essentially a bicycle wheel with a special hub so that the frame and cranks can attach to the side. The frame is positioned above the wheel, and the seat is located on top of the frame. Unicycles are supposedly descended from the penny-farthing bicycles of the late 19th century. These bicycles had a large wheel in front, to which the pedals were attached, and a much smaller wheel in the back for balance. When these bicycles hit a bump, the rear wheel would come off the ground, forcing the rider to balance on one wheel. Early unicycle photographs show unicycles with very large wheels, which supports this theory. Unicycles are more difficult to ride than bicycles, requiring the rider to maintain balance in two dimensions rather than one, and with their slower speeds their motion does not cause gyroscopic assistance for maintaining stability.

    Do you want ro ride a unicycle off-road and preferably through mountainous terrain, for anything up to 2 days, 5-7 hours per day. Competing against others who are slightly less gravitationally challenged on Mountain Bikes. Oops, did I mention a dirty word? particularly in our non-competative, caring and sharing environment, just like what uni-hockey is, oh-yeah. So if you fancy a challenge then attend this event, or the MTB PRO Weekend or the Polaris Challenge . Try your hand at Mountain Unicycling whether you want competition or just a bit of fun/sympathy/find out what it's all about. Funday/woodland crafts, Juggling

    So you've never heard of mountain unicycling? is the title of this group of FAQs provided to beginners.
    So you've never heard of a Mountain Unicycle?
    A little Q and A
    Yes that's right, Mountain Unicycling, and no I'm not kidding. You've probably seen a couple pictures by now, and you probably have a bunch of funky questions. With almost a decade of unicycling and a couple years of mountain unicycling under my belt, I'd like to claim that I've heard them all (but I'm always surprised). So here's a few questions I get a lot along with some answers.
    Q: Does that take a lot of Balance
    A: Yes, otherwise I'd fall off (OK that's the smart mouth answer)
    Q: Are you in the circus?
    A: No, are you? (That's a smart mouth answer too).
    I wouldn't ask a unicyclist this question. To say its a big fat put down is an understatement. You might end up with a unicycle where the sun don't shine. More serious questions:
    Q: How do you stop? (there aren't any brakes on a unicycle)
    A: You just stop pedaling. A unicycle is direct drive. Direct drive means that the pedals are attached directly to the axle no gears, no chain, no brakes, etc (look at this picture ). So to stop, all you have to do is stop pedaling. Its kinda like walking you don't need brakes to stop walking, you just stop stepping and wala, you stop.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What is Mountain Unicycling?
    Mountain Unicycling (known as MUni) is an awesome challenge of mastering the skills to maneuver, balance, and react to allow yourself to ride a unicycle over difficult terrain. Mountain unicycling terrain includes but is not limited to single track, rocky slopes, dirt, mud, sand, snow, ice, creeks, roots, logs, ledges, drops, bridges and even walls. MUni is an incredible workout and a very enjoyable way to enjoy the great outdoors
    Can I learn to Mountain Unicycle?
    Once you learn to ride a unicycle, don't stop learning. To master Mountain Unicycling you need many more skills than just being able to ride, and you should start learning them as soon as can turn that wheel! Your basic balance and steering skills will continue to develop as you learn new skills and its most effective to work on many skills at the same time than slave away learning one thing at a time. Every skill improves your other skills and its important to start learning the more difficult skills early so you can get to the trials and really enjoy the mountain unicycling aspects of the ride. Some of the more advanced skills that you need to learn that are essential for Mountain Unicycling are:
  • riding over rough terrain (thick long grass is great for practicing on)
  • riding up and down slopes
  • dropping off (riding off) higher and higher obstacles (curbs to start)

There are some very difficult trails, some easy. The man in the picture, who attended Unicon IX, is Zhang Shuxiao. He is the Vice Chairman of the China Unicycle Associatio n.
    Here are some pictures of the trails, some of which were quite difficult for me. Other parts of the trail are quite flat and not so difficult. The rider in all the pictures is yours truly.
    There is a road that circles the facility, and it has several hills that are suitable for gliding. The longest I think is about 200 meters. Here is a picture of one of them.

    There are quite a number of good mountain bike areas within a 1 - 2 hour drive from downtown Toronto. We don't have any Mountains in Ontario, but we do have the Niagra Escarpment, which is a cliff face (100 - 150 feet high, not that high by West Coast standards, but hey, it's Ontario, that stretches throughout the Southern sections of the province. Some of the riding on the escarpment can get quite rockey and very technical (even by biking stardards). Compared to the California MUni weekend I'd have to say, the climbs are shorting, the descents are shorter, but still thrilling and on average the riding is slightly more technical than the Saturday ride at Northstar we did (of course it all depends on where one goes. At the NUC we'll have stuff for all levels of riders). Photos of various riding places:
