We’ve seen cyclists of every domination, riding bikes and contraptions of every sort, tackle some of the most demanding routes and passages the world over. There was even the story about a young man who rode his vintage Raleigh "chopper" up the venerable Mount Ventoux – to the amazement of others.
However, this is the first time that we’ve heard about someone riding a "penny farthing" long distance (or any significant distance for that matter).
Indeed, between 2006 and 2008, Joff Summerfield, has cycled around the world on a penny farthing, visiting 23 countries, and riding 23,000 miles/ 35,405 kilometers.
He’s now starting a new adventure, by heading off around the world again, but this time heading westward.
