Reader Ben Schoenberg wrote me yesterday to tell me about Serious Juggling.
Besides all manner of juggling paraphernalia, the Northeast Portland store (and online shop) has a big selection of unicycles.
Ben says they’ve sold unicycles for 10 years now and that they can special order anything your unicycling heart desires.
Think only clowns unicycle? Not in Portland. According to Ben,
“Unicycling is growing in Portland as a fun way to commute or go trail riding. There was even a group that did Bridge Pedal last year.”
Believe it or not, there’s a unicycle class at the Cross Crusade and they’re even great for kids.
At the Worst Day of the Year Ride last year I met a pair of seventh-graders who were gearing up for a one-wheeled ride across Oregon. And there was a cool-looking guy atop a uni’ at the Tour de Fat parade last June. Check them out:
I’ve tried it a few times, but still can’t seem to get the hang of it.
Check out Serious Juggling at their new location in Hollywood (1532 NE 37th Ave.) and get your uni’ on.
Update: A commenter reminded me of unicycle jousting at last year’s Bike Fair. Check it out:
