Cycle Revolution celebrates the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain from every day commuting to Olympic level competition. It brings together bicycles, clothing, accessories, equipment, film and photography to explain where cycling is now and where it might take us in the future.

    Outstanding exhibition that allows you to be a bike nerd. There are 4 themes: High Performance; Thrill Seekers; Urban Riders; & Cargo Bikers; supported by bits on the Bike Builders, the future of the activity, & looping movies. Allowed over 2 hrs if you really want to see it all. Great new text published by one of the Senior Curators at the Design Museum ‘Fifty Bicycles that Changed the World’…
