Cycle New Haven
Sponsored by: New Haven Museum
From Pierre Lallement filing his patent for the pedal-driven velocipede, to the growing popularity of the bike as an instrument of sustainable transportation, New Haven has played a long and impressive role at the forefront of cycling in America. “Cycle New Haven” features material from the New Haven Museum’s archives and collections, along with exciting contributions from the local community. “Cycle New Haven” is a celebration of bicycles and New Haven innovation.
The New Haven Museum has worked in conjunction with The Devil’s Gear Bike Shop and Elm City Cycling as in highlighting the industrial developments surrounding the manufacturing of bicycles in New Haven, to racing at the turn of the 20th century, and the social involvement of our community throughout the last 100 years.
The New Haven Museum, founded in 1862 as The New Haven Colony Historical Society, is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. For more information, please contact Jason Bischoff-Wurstle at (203) 562-4183 x18 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
