The one on your missing back wheel's not pedalling!

Over 10 years ago, Klaus and Roland Bartl, from Munich rode 70 km (43 miles) along the Danube river from Passau, Germany to Linz, Austria. This was a Guinness World Record. This previous Sunday, they got round to posting the video of them riding their tandem unicycle.

All the details I know come from this post on the forums of Unicyclist community.

The arm thing is why I never learned to ride a unicycle. That, and the falling.

That's kind of blowing my head up how that is even possible.

OK, that made me smile. My favorite part was near the beginning, where they were starting to be able to ride it but could only manage it if they flailed wildly the entire time, as if they were being attacked by bees. They looked like they were having a ton of fun either way, though!

Sometimes you think there are no new good ideas that haven't been thought. A propos of nothing.

That is awesome.

That was many times better than what I was expecting. Although, I am not sure what I was expecting!
