Man Makes Daily Commute On Unicycle

ST. PAUL, Minn., (UPI) — A Minnesota man said he makes his daily 18-mile commute year-round on an unusual vehicle — a unicycle.

Bob Clark, 51, said he travels to his office in downtown St. Paul every day on a unicycle, regardless of the weather, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Monday.

“It’s not as hard as most people think it is,” Clark said. “Anyone who can ride a bike can ride a unicycle, with a little practice. It’s a mind-body thing that happens automatically.”

Clark said he owns four unicycles and averages about 10 mph in the winter and 12 mph in the summer.

He said riding his unicycle in public gets him a lot of attention.

“The comments are 99 percent positive,” he said. “Lots of people stick their cellphones out the car window to take a picture.”

However, he does have to deal with the remaining 1 percent.

“I had a firecracker thrown at me once,” Clark said.

“Most people,” he said, “just ask where the other wheel is.”
