The Design Museum in London will hold an exhibition on bicycles in September 2015.
The exhibition, which will run to February 2015, will look at how the bicycle has changed over its history, and pull together a collection of bikes from the past and present.
Britain is in the midst of an explosion of interest in bicycles and bicycling at every level, from every day commuting to Olympic level competition. It’s a phenomenon which is changing the way that we use our towns and cities.
It is driving a wave of creative innovation for mass market cycling, and has also resulted in a surge of craftsman bicycle makers working by hand to tailor machines to the precise specifications of their users. The results are beautiful as well as ingenious.
The Design Museum celebrates the bicycle with a major exhibition that brings together a range of the definitive bicycles of our times, explores the cycling subcultures and the impact of the quest to achieve greater performance is having on the design of bicycles.
