LE-JOG PENNY-FARTHING WORLD RECORD!
20191011: Richard Thoday– a true gentleman & a scholar– *SMASHES* the 1886 record of 5 days and 1 hour cycling a Penny-Farthing 874 miles between Land’s End to John O’Groats by nearly 12 hours! The new record Mr. Thoday set is now 4 days 11 hours and 52 minutes and is now the Guinness Book of World Record Holder for the distance on a Penny-Farthing! I suspect it might be another 133 years before it’s beaten. To put this challenge into perspective, I’ve done about 100 miles in a day on a Penny-Farthing and I had an ass like a baboon at the end of the day. Richard averaged 200 mils/day for over FOUR days. You da man dude; seriously that’s hard-core cycling. Chapeau!
