A day at the (penny farthing) races!

This Saturday, 25 racers from around the country lined up in downtown Frederick to compete in America’s one and only high-wheel race.
Mark and I came out, with a ton of other folks, to cheer the competitors on, who rode their penny farthing bikes through the streets for a full hour.  At the end, the person who had logged the most laps was declared the winner.

Have I mentioned how much I love my little town?
