Cruise Ships & Grocery Shopping

Post by Tiabi » Thu, 27 Dec 2007 09:38:09


So hey guys,
I'm so e***d... My girlfriend and I got our unicycles ordered.
I have two questions...

1.) Can you handle any weight when riding on a unicycle like with a
backpack or does it throw your balance off too badly? I'm wondering if
we'll be able to pull off grocery shopping with backpacks on.

and...

2.) I'm about to go on a cruise. Think I can bring that thing with for
when the boat gets to stops?

I have ridden with 80 pounds of camping gear on my back. My crotch hurt
like hell when I was done, but I made it. Once you are comfortable
riding, you should be able to carry groceries just fine.

I've carried three 2L bottles of pop in a backpack while riding and it
didn't throw me off too much. Just a little adjustment in how far you
need to lean forward. But your body will probably do that automatically
and you may not notice too much of a difference.

If its the same way it is with airplanes then you must dis assemble it
(pedals, seat wheelset) and then you can. Im not sure if they will alow
you to have it together on the boat at ANY time, so i dunno you should
call a rep and find out first hand.

Grocery getting is doable but not ideal. I have ridden with a 60lb pack
but as Danny says, it isn't too comfortable.

If you do ride with a large backpack 'DO NOT RIDE FAST'
(http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59606)! I would not
suggest a uni as a grocery getter, you would be better off walking.

While I have never been on a cruise I cant really see a problem with
bringing the unis. If anything the other passengers may want to take
your pictures a lot which could get sort of annoying, but hey thats the
price of having a bit of extra fun :)

You get that much attention from riding a uni? Is it a common
occurrence?

Well on a cruise it might grab a bit more attention seeing people are on
vacation and might think he is a performer...I dunno.

As others have mentioned, it probably depends on how much extra weight
you can handle in your "seat". Also, you probably should not buy eggs
that day. ;)

You can also just carry stuff in bags, but this starts hurting your arms
pretty quick. I once carried a six pack in a bag in each hand for a
couple of miles, my shoulders killed the next morning.

Maybe if they have a grocery shop on board the cruise liner, you could
combine both activities.
