Fun on Two Wheels: A Short History of the Bicycle
It’s National Bike Month! Join David Chinery as he traces the history of bicycles from 1815 to 1900, including the draisine, the velocipede, the boneshaker, the high wheel, and the safety bicycle. He’ll also discuss the social changes bicycles brought about for men and women. On display will be an 1898 Columbia bicycle, which lacks one of today’s most crucial bicycle elements.
