Co budeš dělat

The penny farthing, also known as the ordinary or high wheel were an integral part of Oamaru's landscape during its Victorian heyday of the 1880's. The local Oamaru Ordinary Cycle Club keeps this tradition alive by building, riding, teaching, touring, and maintaining a fleet of full-size and learner-size penny farthings. Get a taste for the historic experience of learning to ride a high wheel in the Victorian Precinct of Oamaru with Wheelwoman Sophia da Red who says, “a real woman is a wheelwoman and a real man is a wheelman.” She will safely guide you in the art of riding an ordinary without hishap. First, we will start with a demonstration. Then, we will practice technique on a training cycle that is half-size. If the instructor judges your technique to be adequately safe, you will then have an opportunity to ride the full-size penny farthing. Afterwards, we can celebrate your success as a wheelman with a nice cuppa tea, traditional hot toddy at the New Zealand Whiskey Co or a Belgium beer at Craftwork.

Sophia is an experienced wheelwoman and sub-captain to the Oamaru Ordinary Cycle Club. She has trained many tourists and locals alike in the art of riding a penny farthing. She is currently fundraising for a new fleet of miniature penny farthings so local children can also enjoy the penny farthing experience.

What a delightful time we had with Sophia, learning not only how to ride but the history of Pennyfarthings, Oamaru, and her really interesting background. She structured our lesson in a safe way that had us up in no time with lots of laughter along the way. Ending the experience at the Whiskey bar for a hot toddy and a chat was a lovely end to our time.

A cool way to spend an hour. Sophia's instructions had us up and away in no time. A leisurely ride through the historic precinct and along the water's edge was followed by a refreshing Belgian ale. Definitely something to do again!

A pennyfarthing spin through old steampunk-esque Oamaru, followed by a hot toddy in the whiskey bar, was perfection. Sophia and Mark were amazing hosts, and Sophia is a great teacher (even for an uncoordinated rider). I definitely recommend!

Sophia provided us with excellent instruction and guidance on the penny-farthing "ordinary" bicycle. I was a bit nervous at the start but it turned out to be heaps of fun and we had a lot of laughs! The tour of Old Town was exciting on the bike and the Hot Toddie at the Whiskey Bar afterwards was a perfect way to finish such a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Sophia's experience and can't wait to try it again on our next visit! Thanks for all the laughs and your gentle and encouraging guidance Sophia!
