The Cycle Revolution exhibition has been split into four categories of rider’s to display the current state of bicycle design and what the future could bring. The categories of rider’s were High Performers, Thrill Seekers, Urban Riders and Cargo bikers. However there are also a few vintage bicycles on display that continue to shape the future of some of the more modern machines on display such as Hour Record bicycles from Eddy Merckx and Francesco Moser and early folding bicycles from Brompton and Moulton.
The High Performers section has a great series of infographic’s that show you what it takes to win the Tour de France and how much organisation is needed. The evolution of the cycling jersey and some great videos from some of High Performers on display.
Martyn Ashton’s modified Mojo Nicolai Geometron that he used in the YouTube video “Martyn Ashton – Back On Track” by Global Mountain Bike Network was on display in the Thrill Seekers section.
In addition to the four main categories the exhibition had a bike builders workshop, showing the tools, materials and skills needed to create a bespoke bicycle. In the workshop there were six profiles of Independent British bike builders, Donhou Bicycles, Toad Custom Cycles, Hartley Cycles, Robin Mather Cycles, Mercian Cycles and Shand Cycles.
