A Visit to the National Cycling Hall of Fame

A few weekends ago I had the opportunity to visit the U.S. Cycling Hall of Fame in Davis, CA. Here are some of the pictures I took while there:

The first bicycles were operated by standing over them and running. Doesn't seem very efficient, does it?

An example of the first braking mechanism.

A bike designed to be as light as possible. So cool looking!

A bike made out of bamboo. Crazy!

The bicycle ridden by Major Taylor.
