Unicycle challenge

Okay, so it's half a bike but my 10 year old lad is preparing to unicycle 10 miles in the summer. Somehow I've got to try and keep up with him on mine which may result in me walking a lot!

He's done 5 already around the amazing cyclepath network of Milton Keynes, so I think he'll swallows it up easily!!

In my experience, the most critical part is to be able to stay on for just a few pedal revolutions. If you can make it down the driveway, you can go any distance.
Can either of you free mount? A more difficult problem may be mounting where there is nothing to hold on to.
Is the route flat? You might want a wheel larger than usual, perhaps 29". Even better might be a geared hub. Of course, you might not want anything larger than 24" if there are hills.
You probably already know all this. If you regularly go for miles, you no doubt have more experience than I do.
