Unicycle Bowling

I picked up a box of bowling pins at my local bowling ally for $5

I want to try unicylcye bowling, just set em up and plow’em down

I think this would be pretty simple, I guess it wouldn’t be much of a sport, but
if you add the requirement that the rider must stay on the uni it could be quite
challengeing

Re: Unicycle Bowling

Trying it backwards would also be fun. There is also no reason why the pins
would have to be arranged in the standard triangle setup. You could try some
alternatives like putting all of the pins in a straight line or any other
arrangement.

I haven’t decided proabaly riding through, I have a bowling ball that I bought
for $1 so I think I’ll try both, the only problem is riding to the tennis courts
at my local park with a bowling ball and a box of pins

Do you mean with a bowling ball, or just by riding through them? It’s
interesting trying to roll a bowling ball from a unicycle, but I always thought
of bowling as sort of a lopsided sport. It’s all on one arm.

We have another definition of unicycle bowling, from my (in the works) Glossary
of MUni Terminology:

Unicycle bowling: When the unicycle catches air or rolls over multiple times
while falling down the hill (with or without rider).

That’s no problem… you just have to learn riding with one foot while balance
the ball on your other foot and balance one pin on your head and juggle the 9
others first… :wink:
