Bike Pic March 16, Take A Trip Back To The Big Wheel, Penny-Farthing

This Thursday we want to take a trip back in time to learn about the Penny-Farthing. So in the pic featured today you can see one of the very first bicycle designs called the penny-farthing. You weren’t able to just get on one, no you actually had to mount it like a horse. The large wheel in the front had it’s advantages, especially with potholes or rocks, because it could roll right over it.

View the new Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide and remember to register for the Root River Bluff & Valley Bicycle Tour and all the other fun rides coming up.
