From 5 to October 13 there is a unique event taking place in Almaty, Kazakhstan – a mountain unicycling festival. The festival has two parts: a 5-day unicycle tour through the beautiful landscapes of Kazakhstan, and a mountain-unicycle weekend/competition in Almaty to promote the sport of unicycling in Kazakhstan.

If you like to travel and are eager to visit new places, if you enjoy freeride unicycling and would like to ride a lot of different and beautiful landscapes with lots of nice people, if you like to test your skills and compete, this festival is exactly what you need!

Goals and objectives

Development and promotion of unicycling in Kazakhstan.

Popularization of a healthy lifestyle.

Enhance participants' sportsmanship.

Development of domestic and foreign tourism.

The basis of the festival is to promote a particular discipline of unicycling: off-road riding. The first stage of the festival is open solely for advanced unicyclists that pre-registered to participate in “Almaty Trail”; the other stages are open to all comers and are aimed at the popularization of unicycling. The first part of the festival is restricted because it will take place in a remote mountainous area and is potentially unsafe.
