You don’t have to run away to the circus to benefit from the aerobic endurance you’ll get riding a unicycle! Once seen strictly as a conveyance only used by performers and acrobats, in recent years the unicycle is becoming a popular way of getting around by a growing number of enthusiasts. 

Unlike its two-wheeled cousin (the bicycle), the unicycle is a much simpler creation. It has no gear or chain and brake arrangement to move it. Rather, the pedals are fashioned to directly crank the axle and move the wheel. Also, on the unicycle, the weight of the rider is carried directly over the wheel. This is unlike the bicycle, where the weight is offset by the frame so that it’s carried by two wheels. To ride the unicycle requires a slightly different set of balancing skills than the bicycle.
