The Unicyclist

If you’ve been following along on Twitter, last month saw an aerobarred, 36-inch unicycle with panniers in the neighborhood. Didn’t get a photo, but tweeted the sighting and the one-wheeled oddity became like bigfoot. Then the character rode by Hugga HQ and I scrambled to get shots with my phone, pointing it out the window, up and then down the street…grainy and in low-rez, followers were replying back, “we need to see the bones,” like Big Foot.

Then on Friday, finally a closer shot.

The reveal! Finally a better photo

As I learned, these unicycles are built for adventure and I guess he’s training, cause the terrain here is hilly and that wheel is fixed. Where he’s going to ride that, I don’t know…but packed up I’m guessing it’s across Africa or something.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
