A One Wheeled View Of The World
It may be loved by clowns and jugglers, but the unicycle would hardly be the vehicle of choice for anyone tackling Mount Everest. Except for extreme unicyclist Steve Colligan … who intends to do just that for charity.
The father of two will have to overcome 5,000m (16,400ft) mountains, minus 15°C temperatures and negotiate the world’s largest downhill ride, all on one wheel.
His 1,000km (600-mile) ride across the roof of the world will take him along the backbone of the Himalayas from Lhasa in Tibet to Kathmandu in Nepal, via Everest base camp.
