- Frederick, MD will be hosting America's only Penny Farthing race.There is apparantly a pretty big one in Tasmania, and two in England: London and Knutsford, but this may be the only one in all of the Americas. The race will start at 4 p.m. Aug. 18 in front of Brewer's Alley. If that doesn't entice you, Greg Lemond will be competing.

Let’s take some personal responsibility and make sure we as a society make the decisions that instead favor people over cars, favor transportation infrastructure built around the human scale."
