About the Museum

A wide range of early period bicycles are displayed, it is one of the great strengths of the collection, including the following that are worthy of note: A replica Hobby Horse circa 1818, together with a replica Macmillan circa 1839 - 40. A wooden tricycle, which must be one of the very few examples of such an early machine in the country. The display includes six Boneshakers including a Michaux and a C Taylor manufactured in Bristol. Recently, an Otto bicycle (or dicycle) made by BSA in 1881 joined the collection. Two transitional Boneshakers, a Beale & Strawe Facile, Hillman & Cooper Kangaroo and two Crypto machines along with ten Ordinaries.
