“Pedals to Medals” Exhibition at Coventry Transport Museum

Iain Dawson, our Publicity Officer, writes:

Sadly, we didn’t get time on Saturday’s ride to visit Coventry Transport Museum’s excellent exhibition on competitive cycling, but if you have any interest in the history of sports cycles, from the early days up to and including the Chris Boardman era, the exhibition is well worth a visit.

Entrance to the Pedals to Medals exhibition (and the rest of the museum) is FREE, and it runs until the 14th October so plenty of time to hop on a train (or pedal!) and get up to Coventry to view it.

The museum is open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. 7 days a week, and it has a decent café in the foyer to boot.

Bicycle Tours of Coventry

Iain Dawson writes:

For three evenings this month, the Transport Museum in Coventry is running bicycle tours around the city looking at the places that made Coventry the (then) “centre of the bicycle world”.

More information, and contact details, can be found here.

The tours are running in the evenings of Monday 11th, Friday 15th and Monday 18th June

Places are free but limited and must be booked in advance.
