I am setting out to try to break a world record that was set in 1886. Fastest ride from Lands End to John O'Groats on a penny farthing.
5 days, 1 and 3/4 hours
I love riding the penny farthing as it makes people smile and talk. It brings people together. I want to help BBC Children in Need as it helps to bring a smile to faces of children who are having a hard time in life and need a helping hand. Hopefully my ride can help them.
I may succeed, I may fail and I'm sure it will hurt, but either way, if it helps BBC Children in Need it will be worthwile
Attempt planned for July 2019
