Penny farthing

A penchant for Penny Farthings

I really like the look of the old high wheelers, and would love to get one, even one of the newly constructed models. A bit of history that you can experience first hand. It wasn’t that long ago that penny farthings were the fastest things on earth. So occasionally I’ll put a snippet up about the people that still race them, or the folks that toured on them, or, as in this case, the other people in the world that are inspired by them. I can’t say I agree with the route they went down, but I give them points for originality. It looks like the danger factor was one of the elements they wanted to keep around.
