A pair of penny farthing enthusiasts will cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise money for charity.  Neil Laughton and David Fox-Pitt MBE will take on the gruelling 841 mile journey on their 54-inch diameter-wheeled Penny Farthing bicycles.<br />
<br />
The founders of the UK Penny Farthing Club, and England and Scotland Penny Farthing Polo Team captains, the pair aim to cycle 70 miles per day - completing the journey in 12 days.  Their fundraising efforts, sponsored by Hendrick's Gin, will raise money for Mary's Meals, a global charity which organises school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest countries.
