I learnt to ride a penny farthing yesterday! (It belongs to my friend Charlotte, who rode it to Dunwich earlier this month, and it's a *lovely* machine.)

Turns out it's surprisingly straightforward (though apparently I got the hang of it quicker than average), but getting *down* again is a bit more tricky.

In other bike news, I've been offered a part-time cycle instructor job by CTUK, about which I am inordinately happy. Starting late Sept or early Oct.

Times obit for Sheldon Brown, bicycle mechanic & Fount Of All Knowledge extraordinaire. See http://www.sheldonbrown.com for about everything you ever wanted to know about riding or fixing a bike, ever.

London memorial ride 6th April - that thread is from the London Fixed Gear & SingleSpeed list but they're saying there that it'll be publicised elsewhere as well.
