Now we know why they call a Los Angeles cyclist the "Unigeezer."

It's documented on YouTube. 55-year-old Terry Peterson made history by becoming the oldest and the only person to ever climb the steepest street in Los Angeles, Fargo Street, on a unicycle.

It came during Wednesday's 25th annual Fargo Street Hill Climb Challenge and "Unigeezer" Peterson did it not once, but twice.

Climbing Fargo Street on a unicycle has only been attempted a few times in the event's history.
