Blog – Me on a Penny Farthing Bicycle!

The above photograph was the first penny farthing that I’ve been on. The photo was taken in Oamaru, New Zealand.

I’ve been very interested in this bicycle for a while, and read up that the first person who cycled around the world completed it on one of these bicycles (Thomas Stevens). This guy was from the same county as me.

I know these bicycles use to be very popular in the 19th century. Interestingly;  The Penny Farthing was the first really efficient bicycle.
