Replica Pennyfarthing

California denizen, John Erickson, displaying his balance and pedaling prowess on a modern reproduction of a penny-farthing. Mr. Erickson has enhanced his look with a Straw Boater and striped Sacramento Vest.

Penny-farthings (aka High Wheels) can sometimes be seen in 4th of July and Founders’ Day Parades, but did you know there are also races for vintage bikes? ┬áIf this inspires you, there is still time to get ready for the Clustered Spires High Wheel Race in Frederick, MD in August.

If you have pictures and a story to share, we would love to see it. Please contact us here.
