This ethnographic study explores the unusual, lifestyle sport of unicycling with a particular focus on young riders. It arises from the author's own immersion in a unicycling culture over some 8 years, and from answers to the 3, primarily educational, questions which this involvement prompted; these concern concepts of motivation; identity; and ach/evemenf. The questions themselves provide the basis tor tne design oT tne study ana tne consequent analysis or data.
