Great Race Update!

By on February 1, 2010

Have you always thought riding a penny farthing was for elderly eccentrics? Well you might like to know that penny farthing racing is a fast and exciting sport and Knutsford in Cheshire plays host to a three-hour endurance championship on 5th September 2010.

As a preliminary to this, the organisers are providing a further opportunity for interested parties to have a go at riding a penny farthing machine – and this includes you. The next Learn to Ride a Penny Farthing on Sunday 7th February at 2.00pm at  Goostrey Village Hall, Main Road, Goostrey, Crewe, CW4 8PE.

The training sessions will be lead by that well known penny farthing enthusiast Mr Glynn Stockdale, who amongst many other things has a large collection of hi-wheel machines and also has cycled across the USA, coast to coast, on a penny farthing machine 

To book your spot on the course just e-mail Stephen West ( or phone (tel no 01565 755219).
