Modern Penny Farthing


I saw this guy outside Hampton Court Palace on Saturday.  

I'm not sure that I'd be comfortable cycling on something nearly as tall as myself and really hard to climb onto but I love the fact that people still ride them.  What was great was that he didn't belong to any enthusiasts club or anything - he was going for a cycle in the spring sunshine and his choice of transport just happened to be a Penny Farthing.

Wow!! What a crazy hobby to have, right? What made him want to get on such a ride in the first place, I wonder...?

Do you know, I didn't even think to ask him! Fair point though.

Wholy cow!
How does he climb up that thing?
