Au programme

Master the art of riding these splendid machines on a tour through Westminster in central London. After meeting us at London Scottish House, 95 Horseferry Road, Westminster, SW1P 2DX, we will introduce you to the Penny Farthing bicycle, provide you with your equipment including helmets and let you know what you will be doing during the experience. Then we will head out onto the streets where you will learn to safely mount, ride and dismount.

Keen to ride more? After a short coffee break, we will head out on a leisurely guided journey around the Westminster area, past many iconic locations such as the Palace of Westminster, Parliament Square, Churchill War Rooms, the gardens of 10 Downing Street and Buckingham Palace. After a short photo stop we will then roll on back to London Scottish House and return to the present day!

IMPORTANT NOTE: This sporting experience is physically demanding and therefore only recommended for people with a reasonable level of fitness and those under the age of retirement.
Other things to note
You must be at least 5ft 3in (160 cm) tall, weigh less than 100 kgs (220 Lbs) and be in good physical shape. It helps if guests are already competent and confident bike riders in city environments.

Neil guided us safely and thoroughly through the journey of complete novice to a level of competence and confidence. It was such fun to ride around parts of london, with tourists smiling, waving and taking pics. We found the experience exhilarating, and would highly recommend it. Thank you, Neil.

Absolutely one of the best things we’ve ever done. Even my 14 year old son and his friend who are both avid mountain bikers were buzzing after this. Neil is an amazing instructor, incredibly entertaining and really made this experience. Would highly recommend and will absolutely be booking this again!

A brilliant experience, at first you doubt you will be able to ride a penny farthing, but with some excellent guidance from Neil, and some determination, you get the knack. Neil refers to the 5 C’s, make sure you apply them, and it will be an adventure you will thoroughly enjoy. Mel, Luke and Rupert

Great group of riders and supporters including orthopaedic surgeon dentist gp and mortician but needn’t have worried of course as everything was very safe and really well organised by Neil without any assistance.I was utterly hopeless at getting on and useless at getting off but notwithstanding this I made the ride to Buckingham Palace which was exhilarating and that is from someone who races old Grand Prix cars at Le Mans and Monaco.Definitely equal to pedal to the metal in a straight 8 Bugatti supercharged and on methanol.Lovely people a real team effort and lazered in memory.Thank you Neil for your erudite instruction and encouragement.Brandon.

An absolutely amazing morning, Neil is an excellent instructor. It was a dream come true to ride a Penny Farthering and around London made it even more special. Thank you.

Brought as a gift and was on my bucket list. Confidence built while riding but need to practice more on getting on and off. Still want to master this skill.
