Retro Bicycle Picnic with MOSI

Take your bicycle on a nostalgic trip into the past

Published on August 4th 2011.


Retro Bicycle Picnic with MOSI

MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY is offering riders the chance to take a trip into the past, way before lycra, when cycling gentlemen wore tweeds and ladies bicycled in long skirts. 

Organisers are encouraging visitors to arrive by vintage or new bicycle to MOSI's annual transport festival, dressed stylishly and with a picnic in hand. 

Also on show will be MOSI’s fantastic collection of bicycles - from the uncomfortable boneshaker and penny-farthing to the latest racing bikes. 

Visitors will also get a chance to see a display of vintage and classic cars, as well as MOSI's permanent collection of planes, trains and automobiles. 

Weather permitting, many visitors are expected picnic outside, providing an opportunity to watch the steam trains. 

The event will take place in Saturday 6 August between 12pm and 3pm. 

Entry is free.
