Lejog on a penny farthing

Richard Thoday, Penny EndtoEnd, is on his way to break an 1886 record for Land’s End to John o’Groats on a penny farthing!

When this first came to my attention, courtesy of Mark Beaumont, holder of the world record for cycling around the world in 78 days, and the one-hour British penny farthing record, Thoday was approaching Kendal. In the time it took me to decide to blog about his ride, Thoday had passed Kendal and surmounted the following climb, my nemesis on my recent Lejog attempt with Joe Lejog (aka Fearless Leader Joe).

Thoday has since passed Carlisle and is on the verge of entering Scotland. You can follow his progress here, and donate to support BBC Children in Need here.
