I have just ridden/walked in to work on a Saturday just to see how long it takes
(50 minutes), and whether a one-whe^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hunicycle is a viable method of

As some of the route involves “bike-ways” which are actually just
back-streets (as opposed to specialised bike-tracks), I was considering the
purchase of a helmet.

What’s the consensus here? Are helmets a pre-requisite for outdoor unicycling?

Here in Australia they are compulsory for bicyclists but riding a unicycle on
the roads is probably flaunting far more laws than just that. I will have to
rely on the goodwill of any police who see me.

What I really want to do is get an old bike helmet and cut it in half, leaving
the straps intact, to make a unicike helmet. I think it would be a great sight
