Over the weekend, Todd Berman spotted this unicycle parked on Cortland right outside Wild Side West. In a way, this photo is a perfect metaphor for everything Bernal Heights represents. For example:
It’s a unicycle, which is an idiosyncratic way to roll.
It’s an all-terrain unicycle, because we are an all-terrain people.
It is parked outside a bar, because that’s how we party.
It has pink pedals, because we have just a touch of flair.
It is tethered to a tree, because we take security seriously.
See anything else metaphorically Bernalese in this remarkably revealing photo? Do tell.

But it’s missing an angry parking-related note… so I don’t know if it’s ‘everything’ Bernal.
It thinks it has two wheels.
I saw the owner of that unicycle heading west down Eugenia Street , I think he was going to turn down Virginia but I was going the other way so wasn’t sure. Impressive!
I meant to say he was ON the unicycle.
Knobby tires because we live in the country here in Bernal…
Cycle announces plans to eliminate human riders. Neighbors start petition.
It brought its own water container.
That’s my unicycle! It’s a beefier model because I used to play unicycle football before I moved to Bernal.
Congratulations! You win Bernal Heights!
The son of Judy and Judy on Andover near Richland was riding a unicycle in bernal long before the nabe was even on your “wish list” of places to live.
