If you like bikes and bike maps, join me this Sunday at the Hennepin History Museum. The one hour talk will cover the changes that have happened to Twin Cities area cycling since the mid-80s. I’ll also talk about how technology has affected map making, including bike route research. Stop by, I would enjoy meeting you. The History Museum is at 24th and 3rd, near the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The talk begins at 2:00 in the afternoon.

Come early to take in the High Wheels Exhibit presented in coordination with the Cycling Museum of Minnesota. The exhibit features High Wheel bikes from the 1880s, twin cities area cycling memorabilia and a cycling map of the area from the 1880s. You can also test ride a high wheeler in a stationary mount.

Plenty of bike parking and good access by bus. There is limited parking at the Museum and paid parking in the Mia parking lot, but Sundays are big days at the Art Museum, so parking space could be limited.
