Finally got a chance to stop by the Marin Museum of Bicycling this past weekend. A solid collection on display. And while I appreciated the examples from the history of mountain biking, of far more interest were the exquisite exhibits from the history, or beginnings of the past-time of bicycling. Between the penny farthing, trikes, dandy-horse, and safety bicycles, they were some of the best maintained examples I've seen of those particular velocipedes. I became a member to show my support for their mission of preserving and honoring mountain bike history and cycling in general.
Truth be told, the mountain bikes, while interesting, were not even quite as nice in some instances as examples I've seen at places like the Monkey Wrench Bicycle Shop in Lincoln, Nebraska. But the photos speak for themselves. Beautiful bikes!
For over 12 Years I wrote the Reno Rambler Blog covering everything from Bicycle Advocacy, Reno Politics, Popular Culture, and my experiences as a long-time cyclist.
