Museum Saturday Nights
Join us Saturday evenings this winter for a little bike history.
On January 12th, and February 23rd from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Paul will lead some bicycle history talks with demonstrations and some hands-on displays. There will also be snacks and refreshments.
January 12th: ”It’s all about the bike ” will tell the story of the U.S. Olympic team and the special bikes that were designed to produce medals at the ‘84 and ‘96 games.
The stories behind these bikes are very American, and they share the theme of a belief in technology at the expense of the human element.
We’ll have bikes on display that were raced at a couple of different Olympic Games, as well as a missing-link bike that bridges the 12 year gap between the Olympic years in question. We’ll also have a special guest who will provide color commentary that will transport you back to these glorious times.
February 23rd: Chilly Hilly Eve, theme yet to be determined…
