Best Place to Ride High - 2007
Golden Oldy Cyclery
A Penny for your thoughts: "The world is a happier place when you ride a Penny Farthing bike." That's the motto at this Victorian-era cycling museum in Golden, which has one of the world's most comprehensive collections of "big wheel" equipment and memorabilia, including more than sixty classic bikes, a cycling library, a headlamp display and a mock 1880s repair shop. The Golden Oldy Cyclery is the big baby of Steve Stevens, who's come far on his own Penny Farthing high wheel, a model he considers much more efficient than all the fancy wheels of the 21st century. Golden Oldy is open by appointment or during occasional open houses; give Stevens a call and wheel on over.
