You’ve heard of extreme skiing, and even extreme ironing perhaps. Now a German man is trying to popularise a new challenge – extreme unicycling. ‘I realised it would be possible, but very difficult’, said Lutz Eichholz, but he and some friends went up the Zugspitze and came down on unicycles. However, it is not all about mountain challenges as he also rode across the tops of 127 beer bottles. Before or after drinking the beer is not recorded, but it does prove that some Germans at least have a sense of humour! The mind boggles! And I didn’t make it up!! Sylvia Mountford.
