This is one of those sculptures that just came out of nowhere. The figure was originally the pilot for a dirigible which I have yet to make, but he was too big, so after a bit of playing the work below came about.

I had originally planned the figure to be a pilot with a kind of traditional British RAF officer look, hence the handlebar moustache and goggles. This seemed wrong for the cyclist so I gave him a monacle and top hat.

Construction of the bike is still in the planning stage here, handlebars and headlamp need to be added and some of the wood will be repalce by brass rods to give a more period feel. 

 And obvioulsy this wont be a normal pennyfarthing. It will be steam powered!
