Qué vas a hacer

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.

I bought the 'experience' for my Daughter-in-law's birthday present (no I actually do love her to bits) and this it what Grace and Jack said... "Neil ran a friendly, fun and safe class. Riding a penny farthing is a slightly tricky skill, so you feel accomplished at the end whilst having a lot of laughs. Neil was honest about the possible risks but was a safe pair of hands to guide us through learning this new skill. He has the definite air of a former military man, but was also very kind to members of the class who were nervous/scared. I highly recommend the class when looking for 'Something Different'!"

What a fun and enjoyable event. Following some training from Neil we were out cruising through the streets of London and visiting Buckingham Palace and other notable locations. I had a fantastic time and would recommend the Penny Farthing experience to everyone !!.

The experience was a birthday present for a friend. He and another friend had a brilliant time. The tuition was excellent. The locations were superb, including for spectators. Highly recommended!

Great experience, Neil is a great chap, learning to ride a Penny Farthing through historic London is a ‘one off’ experience and if you want to attract attention this is the day out for you !

A really unique experience. Neil made sure that all participants were comfortable and safe before heading out onto roads; I’m sure that’s easier said than done with 7 brand new penny farthing riders!! Expertly hosted and permanent smiles from all guests! There really is now better way to spend a Sunday than cycling up The Mall on penny farthings in perfect formation!

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.
