The bicycle, or some version of it, has been around since the nineteenth century, and it is still a popular form of transportation today. Bikes are a part of our everyday life from childhood through adulthood, but we don't often notice the science behind this wonderful invention. In the exhibit BIKES: Science on Two Wheels, we get to see over 40 variations of bikes from the late 1800's to modern times, including the classics and oddities. Through a dozen interactives, visitors are able to engage in the science, history, design, and art behind the bicycle!

BIKES: Science on Two Wheels tells the history and evolution of the bicycle. Through interactive exhibits and with over 40 bikes on view, visitors will enjoy the science behind this invention! This exhibit is organized by the Carnegie Science Center in cooperation with the Bicycle Museum of America.
