I tried it briefly. I couldn’t make it work. It scared me. I decided it
wasn’t a good idea. I believe Scott Bridgman “muniac.com” has tried this &
been successful. -Mark — UNICICLO@aol.com wrote:

If you (and the respondents) say “on” a treadmill, do you refer to a thing
where you ride on the outside of the cilinder? I never tried, but it seems
to me that riding IN a treadmill would be easier, I mean the larger
version of what one would have in a hamster cage.

I tried it a few months ago in a friends small apartment. I was able to
stay on for a while, at a pretty high speed. Then suddenly, the unicycle
shot out from under me and went shooting across the floor like a
watermelon seed. I might have been able to stay on it, but I think I was
making them nervous so I didn’t keep going. It didn’t seem dangerous at
all. Seemed kind of fun. Let me know if you do it. Seems it would be a
funny looking gimmick, but not necessary when you have the great outdoors.

David,

I saw your post today and noticed that you had several other posts on the
group. I was thinking about this very thing yesterday when I was changing
planes in Dallas. They have long moving walkways to help you get between
terminals faster (like tread mills, or vertical escalators

  • I think they are called People movers). I wished I had had a unicycle
    with me so I could try riding in place while the belt moved under me.

I got home safely, but one of my bags went to Chicago. They found it and
will drop it off tonight.

P.S. I love your address. j.

I did take some footage of myself riding on one of these (the wrong way)
for a short film. The walkways go quite slow compared to riding. If I were
to do it again I would try a 16" unicycle so that I could easily ride at
the same speed as the moving belt.

It was a huge headache trying to get authorised by airport security but we
finally did it.

The film was to be titled “The Uni-Bomber”. It was at the time when the
international press were looking at the Una Bomber. The film never got
made as the footage was no good and we had no idea on where to find
footage of an exploding airplane.
