    Default Penny Farthing (High Wheel) Race in Frederick on 18 August

    The current issue of Spokes Magazine announces a Penny Farthing race in Frederick, MD on 18 Aug

    A blog for the Potomac Region Wheelmen also says there will be a highwheel tour of DC on Sunday 19 Aug.

    I don't think I can make it to Frederick for the race but the ride around DC would be worth seeing.

    It's funny that I saw this post yesterday, then today (in DC, by the MLK memorial) I saw this:

    Wish I could have gone to see the event. The WP this morning reported that one of the riders took a fall and was injured.
