If you happened to be around Oakhill one evening last term you might have witnessed something you definitely don’t see every day. Two of our LE JOG star cyclists, Daniel and Jacob, were being put through their paces with a more traditional way of pedalling around!

Mr. Jepson, former teacher and Oakhill cycling guru, brought along his vintage Penny Farthing to give the boys a training session on this lost, and perhaps more risky form of transport. True to form he delivered a quick and simple training session and set them off.

The boys successfully completed a couple of laps and Daniel even managed to stop and dismount unaided – not an easy feat. Due to a mechanical fault Mr. Peel was thankfully spared his turn.

As to why, you may have to wait a few weeks – watch this space!
