Collections appeal

The Museum is working to build its collection of cycling material and received a great response to an appeal for historic bicycles in May 2013. We're still seeking riding outfits for men and women pre-1945. If you have items of clothing you think might be suitable for the Museum's collection, please email curator Daniel Oakman.
