The National Australian Penny Farthing Championships are held in Evandale a village in Tasmania every year in February.
It’s a great day out where all levels of both hilarity and seriousness are embraced. The commentators call each race in all seriousness, reserving some humour for the fun events, but when it comes to the main event where the National champion is decided then it’s a race call worthy of Phil Liggett himself.
I love the combination of old bike frames and contemporary race wear.
Some of the bikes are bespoke with their sleek lines and often include modern features such as brakes.
