Cycling Exhibitions in London
FIXED Exhibition at the Design Museum
In the Tank exhibition area in front of the Design Museum, Shad Thames, until 9 September, free to view any time day or night, FIXED is a survey of fixed gear bikes from 1888 to the present day. Featuring four significant fixed wheel bicycles along with an exploded, annotated 3D diagram of a fixed geared bike lasered into a sheet of glass.
Riding ‘fixed’ is thought to be a ‘pure’ way to interact with your bike, no brakes, no gears - just you and the bike. Fixed gear bikes do not allow coasting, so the only way to rest at any point is to pedal slower.
Pedal Power at the Science Museum
Come and see the latest technology that is helping cyclists to ride faster than ever before. Demonstrations on 25-27 July at the Science Museum, South Kensington.
Take a look at the latest racing technology, including carbon-fibre frames, recumbent bikes, heart-rate monitors and two-way radios. You'll also be able to see the famous Lotus racing bike, which lead Chris Boardman to an Olympic gold medal.
