Last night at the local cycle club hill climb I turned up on my Nimbus 36" Unicycle. The course was 2.66km long going up 150m on Clay Bank near Stokesley. The aim was not to come last! Riders set off at 1 minute intervals. By the top I was caught by one bike and had the rider in front of me well in sight.
So time on the unicycle = 9:27, my best time on the racing bike = 8:04. So conclusion is on this course was that I was faster on 2 wheels... but not by that much. I also still beat over 12 bikes on the unicycle.
