When you see a large collection all in one place it can be quite overwhelming, and hard to focus on particular items of interest. An online presentation makes viewing much easier. In 2007, the ONLINE BICYCLE MUSEUM came into being as a result.

Curating an online museum is no different than one with a physical location: it’s all about helping visitors view the collection. So you can now view the ONLINE BICYCLE MUSEUM via Facebook’s RIDE VINTAGE TV CHANNEL, which presents different aspects of the Museum you might not otherwise have noticed, as well as the latest updates. These will increasingly be accompanied by video.

As well as the RIDE VINTAGE TV CHANNEL, there are numerous Facebook Groups, where you can view and exchange information with me and fellow enthusiasts about different vintage bicycle topics.

You’ll need a Facebook account: then click on the links below each of the pictures.
