"The Marin Museum of Bicycling features bicycles representing nearly 200 years of cycling history," said Museum Board President Marc Vendetti. "Our exhibits include an 1868 Michaux velocipede, part of the museum’s Igler Collection, on long-term loan from David Igler. To illustrate bicycle ancestry we'll show a replica of an 1820 "boneshaker." And during our opening month, we'll be displaying the Specialized Tarmac that Vincenzo Nibali rode into Paris to win the 2014 Tour de France."
Ribbon cutting ceremony, food and drink will be available for purchase, along with face painting, trick riders, a giant bicycle sculpture and more. Enjoy live music by Fenton Coolfoot’s “The Right Time” and the Drake High Jazz Band. Meet mountain bike pioneers and racing legends in person.
