Race on old Penny Farthing bikes

Loads of us love a good bike race - but what about if your bike wheels are as tall as you?

Bike fans from all over the world got on their Penny Farthings to take part in the Knutsford Great Race.

It might sound crazy, but about a hundred years ago these massive bikes were the regular way to get around on two wheels!

Check out the race here - you'll have to wait ten years for the next one!
