Freestyle, Trials, Street, Off-Road, Distance make way for . … .
As a satire and parity of Extreme Ironing, Extreme IDling is the newest “style” into the unicycling community.
It’s all the goodness of Extreme Ironing, with more extremity because there’s a focus on more risk!
Ever wanted to idle:
. on one of the local police cruisers?
. on the countertop at a McDonald’s?
. in a flying jumbo jet?
. within 15 feet of the President?
. on the edge of a cliff?
. in a bank with a ski mask on?
. in heavy traffic with pedestrians?
or in raw sewage?
With Extreme IDling . . . Now you can!
The key is creativity. Rather than restrictively define places, times, and styles of idling, I’ll leave it up to the participants to create idling missions, execute and photograph them. The sport will evolve from there!
As long as there is a risk of injury, incarceration, or humiliation (or any word that rhymes with the latter two) it qualifies!
Example: Getting the mail from your mailbox doesn’t count - unless you’re naked and it’s daylight.
Rules, Guidlines and Legal Stuff.
There are no levels or points. Only a Master and Students.
The “Master” of the sport is selected via a popularity contest of submitted photographs.
All other participants are “Students.”
The Master shall be called “Master” and can blurt “go back to the temple and learn, your skills are weak!” at anytime orally or written, or cause the same to be done amoung participants.
Legal Disclaimers must be present at each “competition”
All competitions are to be held online using photographs and are open for anyone to compete.
Like Extreme Ironing, the sport is closely coupled with photography: Photos should be taken with the cranks in 6 and 12 o’clock.
Any wheel size can be used. Bikes, trikes, and recumbants allowed.
No devices without pedals, cranks and a rolling wheel allowed.
Pictures cannot be graphically created.
Extreme IDling must be “called.” To prevent idles from being accidently captured the rider must bust out with “Extreme IDling!” at the time of the idle.
References to Exteme IDling must always be spelled with a capital “D”
On the honor system: The photos submitted must have a true “idle” captured (i.e. not a downhill descent where the cranks are 6 and 12)
Participate in Extreme IDling at your own risk. The participants do not endorse illegal or immoral activities including but not limited to defacing or damaging property, harming living beings or breaking laws. Not recommended for level 1 or very inexperienced riders. (Some Esq. can help me develop that a bit, hopefully)
