    Nick Wilmshurst

    BBC Yorkshire Live

    Earlier on we told you about the Leeds man who had his unicycle stolen form outside The Tetley in the city.

    He used it for his daily commute and even won a race on it, but it got us thinking - What else can you do on a unicycle?

    Quite a lot apparently, just take a look at Flaviu Cernescu, he rode his on top of a 250m high chimney in Romania.

    Flaviu Cernescu

    Ok, that's just a bit too much isn't it, I mean - Why?

    But how about skateboarder style tricks on one? Unicyclist Hugo Duguay, even matched a world record for the long jump on a unicycle


    But if all of that seems a bit too urban, how about heading out into the countryside?

    Edd Hawkes from Dunstable is a mountain unicyclist who made it into the elite downhill category in the Mountain Unicycling World Championships.

    Yep, that exists.

    Bridgewater Place

    The large screens and baffle boards will be up to 50ft (17m) high and 66ft (20m) long and will look something like this:
