I had a very similar experience while riding my unicycle one day.
I was peacefully enjoying myself riding, and I hear some dude behind me coasting(you know, that clicking sound bikes make when coasting). Then he rides up beside me and like looks at my uni, looks at me, looks at my uni again, then repeats like 4 more times, and at this point i’m thinking he has some mental problem, which he did. Anyway I finally look at him and put my arms out and say “what?” Then he goes, you look like a clown, dude. I proceeded to say…“uhhh…so?” Then he says “you know, like from a circus, you look like a clown…and I reply “ok…”. Then he says it again, and I’m like ok wtf’s wrong with this idiot? Then he says, “have you ever been to the circus and like seen a clown on the unicycle”?. I told him no. I’m already annoyed at this point, and then he’s like “I used to bmx, you know, like tricks and stuff…like this, watch” and he does a wheelie, spins his handlebars and when he lands immediately falls off. He goes “Yeah I haven’t done this for a while”…and then attempts the handlebar trick like 10 more times failing every time. Then he goes “you see that? that’s true skill”. So I just kinda roll my eyes and say uhhh yeah whatever you say man. Then he starts asking me questions about me, like how old am I, saying I look younger than I am. So I start to think he’s gay and at this point I’m just utterly annoyed and disgusted as he’s been following me like 10 blocks already. So I start to pedal faster to try to tire him, but unfortunately I was on a 24” with quite long cranks, so that proved useless as he easily stayed with me and kept coasting off and on. He asks me “do you like rap”? I do truly like rap, but I shouldn’t have made the mistake and told him I like rap, so he starts saying “lets go back to my house and rap man, I’m good at rapping, you know, I’ve been rappin all my life and I used to write poems to my girlfriend”. Then he starts rapping as were riding, which was needless to say extremely annoying. People in the neighborhood were for once not paying attention to me unicycling, but looking at him with a disgusted face. So I just start ignoring him pretty much, not listening to a word he says, because every single thing that came out of his mouth was complete bullshit, and I’d just reply “yeah…” to every single thing he said. I thought this should finally get rid of him. But, no, It did not. He went on and on and on and on…AND ON… about usless bullshit for about literally 4 miles. I am tired by this time, I had been unicycling all day beforehand, and had extreme saddle soreness. We were next to the highway also at this point on the sidwalk and he starts pedaling ahead of me doing jumps off the curb towords traffic, and I’m so annoyed and disgusted and tired of him that I’m honestly just saying to myself “cmon…just get hit by a car or something…god just make him go away”. Now, I never wish bad things on people. But this is the first time I did. Anyway, after a few more jumps off the curb he turns around, and says “later dude”, and rides the opposite direction. I immediately get off the uni and just say , THANK GOD, and rest my sore self for like 5 minutes and watch him ride far away to make sure he gets very far before I turn around and start making my way back.
I didn’t want to be an asshole and be like ok, dude get the fuck away from me, because he was 26, was bigger than me, and I just couldn’t imagine what he would do with his mental disorder.
After this happened , I decided to never ride in my neighborhood again. This was a couple weeks ago, and I still do but rarely, I just put my uni in my car and drive somewhere else.
Although yesterday, I rode out to the end of the driveway to start practicing riding backwards…and…there he was…at the end of the street. He saw me and immediately started pedaling very fast towrods me. I got off the unicycle, ran as fast as i could into my house. I saw him out front, looking for me in my house, then he turns around and rides back up the street. I dodged a damn bullet.
Anyway, thats the end of my long horrible story, and hopefully this will never happen to me again, or anything similar happen to any of you guys.
