Melbourne man in full cycle gear surprises commuters on Penny-farthing

A Melbourne cyclist has stunned commuters yesterday (April 29) by cruising at rush hour in full lycra on a penny-farthing bicycle.

The comical moment was spotted by a commuter travelling on a crowded Route 11 tram in Fitzroy.

As the tram came to a stop the lycra-clad pedal pusher glided past.

The filmer commented: "I thought maybe like training for like a circus act?

"It’s not practical but seems like something people could get into, like a hobby you know.

"I really want to know how you climb up on it, it was big!"
