It’s possible this Athenian wonder is filled with liquid courage, teetering on a unicycle to get to the next bar a little faster than walking.
But in actuality, The Unicycler is former OU student Pete Hasemeier, whose antics made his way into the San Fransisco Chronicle back in 2005.
It read: "Ohio University student Pete Hasemeier uses an unusual mode of transportation to make his way through Athens to a clothing store. Hasemeier, of Athens, says he prefers a unicycle because it frees his hands for tasks, such as talking on a cell phone and holding an umbrella to fend off yesterday's rain. He is studying to become a chiropractor."
Hasemeier’s mannerisms are exemplary of his native Athenian background; A true-blue Athenian, it is no doubt this is just one of those “Athens-things.”
Show Athens some love.
