What fun! Initially I was surprised by the height of the bikes and was very nervous, but Mark broke it down into bite-sized pieces and quite soon I was able to get on, more crucially get off, and cruise around Brighton with confidence. Mark was very good at predicting problems and compensating for my inexperience. I'll be back!

If you are looking for something different and very unique this is an experience for you. At first the penny farthing looks impossible to ride, but after the great tuition they really are not that hard. An excellent way to see brighton and have a great time.

Had a great day out with Mark in Brighton today. I was apprehensive at first but Mark has a great, relaxed and friendly approach and we progressed very nicely from mounting t riding t dismounting and then circles! Afterwards a really pleasant ride along the Brighton Seafront with lots of people gawking and smiling and waving. Great fun day out. Highly recommend it.
