Masters of poise and balance gathered together to ride across the city on unicycles for the third annual Unicycle Festival. Sheepshead Bites reader and “Friends of Ocean Parkway” blogger Allan Shweky sent us some wonderful pictures of talented unicycle enthusiasts wobbling away by Ocean Parkway.

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz finally declared this past Friday “Brooklyn Unicycle Day,” as talented unicyclists took part in a three-day long-distance ride. Allan described the path of the unicycle riders on his blog:

The long distance ride starts at City Hall in Manhattan, crosses the Brooklyn Bridge, and continues to Coney Island. The total distance of the ride is approximately 13 miles.

The ride was organized the Unicycle Bridge Tour. Here are some more pictures provided by Allan. Thanks for all the great stuff!

    Surprised Bloomberg wasn’t issuing tickets for unicyclists illegally using the bike path like that unicyclist last year in Canarsie who was issued a summons for riding his unicycle on the sidewalk when it is not against the law.
