Who Invented the Unicycle?

Answer

The unicycle is a single wheel vehicle similar to a bicycle. Being fully human powered, the speed that can be attained depends on the wheel size. It is not known who invented the vehicle, but it is believed that they evolved from the penny-farthing bikes of the 19th century that bore a large wheel in the front and a smaller one on the rear. Riders realized they could ride on the front wheel thus the unicycle.
