Wat je gaat doen

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.

Clear and safe instructions. (Patient too!) Great spot for riding. Top quality brand new equipment. Easier than I expected - Balancing is not hard.

Awesome tour with Neill. 😊 He took care excellently of all riders depending on their skills. Felt safe all the time. Wonderful stories and a lovely group. If you are unsure - do it. Its worth it and one of those "you've should done this minimum once in your life experiences"

Today was fantastic, I bought this for my daughters birthday, something we could do together. Neil was brilliant, he explained everything in detail, everything was very clear and easy to understand and he physically help us too before we got the hang of it. My daughter hopped on like it was nothing, for me not quite as easy, but very good fun! I really recommend this! We loved every second! Thank you!

This was great fun though I think probably better suited for someone younger and more agile than myself with sharper reactions, still all in all great fun.

A really unique way to try a new experience. Very enjoyable and a great learning opportunity which has enabled me to try a penny farthing before buying one. I would recommend this tour!
