    London.

    M/S of old man with big beard, the camera pans down to show he is sitting on a penny farthing bicycle. Various shots of other members of the Old Ordinary Bicycle Club getting ready for a race from Westminster to Blackheath. Various shots as they set off across Westminster bridge with Big Ben in the background as they cycle along. The commentator says the members of the club get annoyed if people call the bicycle a penny farthing as it is really an Old Ordinary. The old bearded man stops at a crossing and a little girl stares at him. Various shots as they continue on to Blackheath. The winner comes in followed closely by the others. M/S of the bearded man coming in at his leisure.
