Unicycle hockey

Working at zoo station this week and fell into conversation with a retired man who is working at introducing unicycle hockey to the local primary school. Yes it’s true! People do play hockey on unicycles!!! www://hockey.unicycling.org.au/

I’ve recently read A Time of Gifts -a travel book by Patrick Leigh Fermor. He’d played bicycle polo in Hungary before the war. I’d thought it was just the lost frivolity of a decadent upper-crust but my retired man says there is still a bicycle polo club in Melbourne, although these days you provide you own bike and they have trouble finding place to play.

After last week’s grim post, it’s nice to be reminded that the world can also be a delightful place.
