And then i rode a Penny

Last weekend John Kitchen invited Me and the Valley Wheelers (the retro guys I ride with) to the Bathurst Bicentenary.  I rode around on a Penny Farthing, on the busy main roads of Bathurst.  It even made the local news.
This was my third time up on a big wheel, The first two being in races.  So it was nice to just cruse around and enjoy the view.

My first time on a penny.  I learnt on dirt, going down hill (btw, how small are my legs!)
