Miniature Bicycle - Kidderminster, Worcestershire
Alf Tabb, 83, of Kidderminster, rides his smallest bicycle, which is only 5-and-a-half inches high. He offers 5 to anyone who can ride it, but he has beaten all challengers so far. For 25 years he delivered copes of the London Evening News by bicycle, before moving to Worcestershire to start a cycle business.
