My Favorite Bike

Wife, mom, grandmother, motorcyclist, and blogger.

An old friend recently posted a picture of me she found at her parent’s home. It is me on my grandfather’s Penny-farthing. This bike had been in my dad’s family for years. It had wooden wheels with a medal strip around the outside that made contact with the road. I think the only update it ever received was a new seat.

My Favorite Bike - a Penny-farthing

My Favorite Bike

I had forgotten all about it until I saw this picture! I loved riding the Penny-farthing all over the neighborhood. Unfortunately my parents are no longer alive so I can’t ask them the story of this bike. I also don’t know what happened to it. Maybe my sister knows.

Thank you for stopping by to see my favorite bike the Penny-farthing. Now my favorite two wheel bike is a motorcycle.
