The Los Altos (CA) History Museum began exhibiting “Pedal Power: From Wacky to Workhorse” last April. As part of this summer-long bike theme, the museum has two special events over the weekend.
Saturday’s event is an electric bike festival from 10 AM to 1 PM at the museum, where you can see a bamboo electric bike from Calfee Designs, a “classic” styled e-bike from Vintage Electric Bikes in
Los GatosSanta Clara, and several models from Faraday in San Francisco.
On Sunday, July 27, History San Jose will open their “Silicon Valley Bikes: Passion, Innovation & Politics Since 1880” exhibit from noon to 4:30 PM. I was asked some time ago to provide some photos for this exhibit; let’s see if any of them made it in.
Speaking of history, I’m currently perusing this new book, Googles and Dust, a coffee table book featuring photos of European road cycling from the first four decades of the 20th Century.
The photos are drawn from the private collection of Shelley and Brent Horton and will be available for purchase on http://www.cyclelicio.us/shop/cycling-books/googles-and-dust-cycling-glory-days/?1937715299″>September 1, 2014.
