Rich Reiner, another rider, brought his penny farthing. It was a bike with two large wheels in front and one in back. This is something you might recognize from an old movie. It also doesn’t have breaks.

Reiner’s penny farthing was in a movie because it was used as a prop for a 1970s movie.

Reiner stated, “It’s very easy actually, but it’s not something you would want to ride in a crowd for the first time.” These Chico traditions are my favorite. It is what makes this town unique.
