I am on a unicycle usually 8 days a week.....if nothing else just practicing in the driveway.

I go for a mountain uni ride or an urban session 1 or 2 days a week. I'd do more but I am usually on the mountain bike 3-4 days a week.

I go from riding 5 hours a day (when I was really gun-ho about training) to riding twice a week when I have a whole lot of things going on.

I ride at least once every two days. If I go longer than that, I start suffering withdrawl symptoms.

In actual fact, a couple to several times a week.

In my mind, however, I am unicycling most of the time either riding along a highway beneath the great big blue freedom loving American sky or zipping from circus ring to ring all the while juggling for the frantic crowd, my big bright red nose aglow with pride.

Re: How often do you unicycle?

At least once a day (walk the dog...the old thing can't keep up to the
mountain bike anymore.)
If I miss a day, I start to get withdrawals.

Well, I shall respond based on the b.b.l. era (before broken leg).

I usually commuted to school about four times a week at about 12 - 20 km per day and then rode trials and MUni on the weekends.

In fact, I rode so often that occassionally I imposed a 'day off' with strictly no uni'ing so as to give the muscles and joints a rest as a hopeful preventative to overuse injuries (BTW, I have never had an overuse injury from uni'ing yet, that is if you don't count a broken fibula as an overuse injury,,,,,,, LOL... ).

How often do you unicycle?

I ride every day, except for some days. Unicycling is my form of transport, and I go most places on one wheel. There are some days when I don't ride, for example when I am resting up due to injury, or when the weather is unpleasant. I think the type (or types) of Unicycles you own influence the amount of riding you do. Since I got my MUni I have done a lot more riding for the sake of riding, and before then I did some, but mainly just transported myself to visit friends.

I used to unicycle every day, but now that school has started, I can only ride on weekends. I can't ride to school because I have this funky thing where first period is at my house, because I don't learn anything if I do math at school. Maybe next semester, if math is last period instead.

Usually 1 to 3 times a week, for 1 to 2 hours per session.

Interesting thread (but I'm NOT planning on a pertinent statistics
exercise in case anyone wonders).
