The National Clustered Spires High Wheel Race is guaranteed to bring excitement as racers from across the globe compete for the championship title by racing through the streets of historic downtown Frederick atop high wheel bicycles. It’s the only race of its kind in the United States!
High wheel bicycles (also known as penny farthings), which were popular in the 1880s, are bicycles with a large front wheel and a much smaller rear wheel. The race consists of a criterium (multi-lap) race along a 0.4 mile route through the heart of the historic district. Don’t miss out on the action!
