The goal of the Houston Bicycle Museum is to display collections of antique and classic bicycles as well as exhibiting cycling related memorabilia. The museum will cover the spectrum of cycling beginning at its infancy in the mid 1850's and chronicling its evolution through to the most sophisticated of today.
Throughout this journey the museum will provide an informative and educational glimpse of how the bicycle and cycling has influenced our transportation, our leisure activities, our culture, our society, our lives and how, by using the developing technologies of each era, the bicycle has progressed in our ever-changing world. The history of the bicycle is a fascinating story. It is the desire of this museum to bring the pages of that book to life.
Friends of the Houston Bicycle Museum,
The time has come to celebrate our efforts and finally open the museum to the public. To do this, we are hosting a Grand Opening on free museum day: Thursday, February 26th.
Please spread the word to your friends and neighbors about this free event. There will be food and prizes, as well as the opportunity to become a member and support the museum. Every hour between 6pm and 9pm will have drawings, with the Grand Prize being a $500 Bianchi Bicycle. However, if we meet our Membership Goal of 200 new members, there will be a SECOND Grand Prize.
All of this could not have happened if it weren't for your donations and assistance. Thank you for everything you have done with us.
Use this graphic for promotion. Every visitor matters!
We hope to see you there!
