Hi, I am planning a ride from London (Westminster Abbey) to Paris (Notre Dame) on a penny farthing in full medieval armour.
Can someone tell me, for the Dieppe route, if there are any long or steep uphill sections along the way?
I can only do about 25 miles a day on this bike given that it has no brakes, gears or air in the tyres and of course I will be hauling quite a bit of extra weight with the armour, so anything uphill longer than about 10 miles will be a problem, especially as I am 56.
