If you ever shied away from the challenge of a long distance bike trip, well here's a trip that really isn't for the faint of heart -- or the unskilled.

Last summer, Adventure Unicyclist, Bike Asia and Grasshopper Adventures teamed up to host a tour of Mongolia by unicycle.

The 12-day tour (with seven days of one-wheeled biking) covered 150 miles and gave athletically inclined and adventure-tuned travelers a unique way to get from point A to point B, while creating quite the spectacle in pictures. The Monguni tour group jokingly claims that unicycling is only half as difficult as biking -- you only have half as much to worry about.

Regardless of the modesty, the tour is an impressive mixture of athleticism, eco-tourism and dash of humor. Was it a success? They're back for more this summer in South-West China.
