Mountain Unicycling (MUni)
take to the trails in our MUni events! Riders demonstrate amazing
technical skill as they navigate rocks and roots in our local parks.
Distance riders use unicycles with wheels of up to
36" diameter, some with handlebars and gears. The top riders can reach
speeds of over 25 MPH, in events ranging from a short, intense criterium
to a grueling 42km marathon.

This year's U Games will feature the Puerto Rico All Stars, the most successful team in Unicycle Basketball history, having won by far more world championships than other team. Their biggest rival is the local team, the Berkeley Revolution, which placed second in the the most recent world championships held in New Zealand.
