Riding two?

As I was wheeling(pushing) two 24 inch Sims out to the car, I was wondering if
it was possible to ride two unicycles by pedaling between the two? Has anyone
tried? Let me know. I don’t ride, I’m just the pack mule and the stopper of
flying unis. Barb

Once my sister and I were unicycling around with our friend, and then we
went to our other friend’s house to get her, so we had four people and three
unis. (the fourth uni was at our house, a few blocks away.) That meant one of us
had to walk. UNLESS we could get three people on four unis. We could do
on-the-shoulders or piggy-back rides, but we thought it would be cool to share
pedals, with one uni in between every person. We arranged the pedals so they
were up, down, up, down, etc. Each person would be riding between unis, with one
foot on the right side of one uni and the other foot on the left side of the one
next door. And then we tried to get on…

and then we all fell off!

but it would look really really neat if we could master it. And since people can
do sideride and things like that, it’s possible, right?

Re: Riding two?

I wonder if riding three people on two unicycles would be easier: 2 normal (?)
riders with the third one between them with one foot on the other riders feet. I
didn’t say it iis possible, and there could be some pain involved, but I think
it is doable.

After trying group bicycle, I now know that anything is possible.

here’s a couple options for you…

  1. Bill Karbo of MN would lean two uni’s together and walk the wheel with one
    foot on each wheel while sitting on both seats.

  2. two uni’s of equal height can be used as stilts. especially fun with
    giraffes.

I recently tried standing with one foot on the crown of each of two adjacent
unicycles, with my hands on the riders’ shoulders as they rode. I was roped into
it because the riders wanted to try riding away from each other, and I could get
lower into the splits than anyone else they could find |-[

The biggest problem was that both riders veered in the direction where they had
more weight - i.e. towards each other.

We then tried it with 3 unicycles and 5 riders. The centre rider, who had a
fairly even weight on each side of his uni, had no problems. The outer two
riders veered fairly sharply inwards and we all fell off PDQ.
