Bicycle History at Canada's National Museum of Science and Technology

Canada's National museum of Science and Technology has a great on-line exhibition of the history of the bicycle.

This collection is presently being shown at the museum of popular culture in nearby Trois Rivieres.

Do NOT miss this chance to see the amazing collection, it's a great display of the history of technology itself, especially in the rapidly developing industrial age of the late 1800s.

Until, eventually, wood was no longer used as a material to make bicycle parts (i.e. rims were originally made of wood).
