Never seen so many penny farthings together in one place. It must have been a great race to watch. You've covered it well in your pics here really good.

I never would have thought....

Those must be hard to stay on. I was going to think that you were going to say the winner was the one who could stay on the bike for the whole course without falling off.

That is so cool! I almost want to ride one, except for fear I'd probably immediately fall off. :)
