The Bicycle: Two Wheels to Adventure


Over the past 200 years, the bicycle has evolved into a vehicle that opens doors to new adventures and experiences for all ages. Learn about the many ways this 19th-century invention significantly impacted Chicagoland manufacturing, transportation, and lifestyle by redefining an era of newfound leisure and independence. This story of the “human-powered carriage” is told through examples of iconic bicycles, artifacts, and timeless photographs including a special display on suburban adventurer, educator, and World’s Most Traveled Man, J. Hart Rosdail, who set off on record-setting journeys across the globe aboard his trusted bicycle, Jacqueline.
