The Art and History of the Bicycle
Whoa! I’ve been on a rush of work from my job (which I’m grateful to have and is totally un bicycle related) and have been neglecting this blog. In between work and kids I’ve been squeezing in as many rides as possible and did make a quick visit to the Sonoma County museum’s exhibit of the Art and History of the Bicycle. The show is up until February 5th and is well worth the a visit if you’re in the area. I had to do a quick run through the show because I had my 3 kids with me and keeping them from touching everything was basically impossible.
The shows focus is a general overview of bicycle history and northern CA’s influence on mountain biking and regional bike builders. I definitely could have spent more time reading up on everything but here is a brief photo overview of the show.
The star of the show for me was a bike made of wood by the Old Hickory Cycle Company in 1896.
The Healdsburg Wheelmen 1895.
Santa Rosa Wheelmen 1895. These guys look serious.
