My friend Steve and his son Tim were in town to visit Bedford Unicycles, and so I thought that I would tag along.
Little did we know that up those stairs would be a treasure trove of all things unicycle.
I thought that the owner, Darren, looked familiar. It turns out that I had seen him just a few weeks ago at the Junction Solstice Festival, when he dropped by the Cycle Toronto booth several times, each time with a more interesting conveyance.
He is very dedicated to promoting unicycling, builds and sells his own machines, and ships to customers all over the world.
This last bit is not a real Lego set, although it would be no more bizarre than the famous Playmobil Airport Security set.
Although my sense of balance is not what it used to be, I’m intrigued. Maybe a unicycle would only count as half a bike to add to my collection.
