bicycle built for two......
I was driving along the Kaikoura coast... minding my own business, when suddenly... yes, suddenly from around the bend comes a guy riding a penny farthing. OK... not exactly what you would expect to stumble across on State Highway one. But it got funnier.... they kept coming.
Turns out they were touring the South Island on these things. Yes, you too could tour New Zealand on a penny farthing. How much fun would that be, once you figure out how to ride the thing! :)
It was a beautiful sight, and certainly brought a smile to my face... especially to see some of them in costume to boot. Pity there was nowhere for me to pull over and snap a picture of it all. I promise, it wasn't a dream though.
