Gone cycling

Penny farthings


Number 8 Network has headed Otago-ways for a bicycle ride in full Victorian clobber.  Penny farthings will be involved, and Annette Taylor says this year she might try and get on one.  For one minute.

Last year she joined a keen group of enthusiasts for an old-fashioned cycle tour of Canterbury. Lycra and gears were shunned for vintage, one-speed bikes, with riders decked out in an eclectic mix of Victorian outfits.

This year we’re exploring Taieri Plains.

Look after Gordonton and surrounds until we get back.

Here’s what we got up to last year.  Tally ho!

Penny farthings
What can possibly go wrong on one of these?
