There is an exhibit currently at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago called The Art of the Bicycle. Bicycles were first invented 200 years ago, so over the years there is plenty of material for any bicycle exhibit. It is always interesting to see what the curators select as a focus, i.e. would it be a specific type of bike (road, mountain), classic races (Tour de France) , training (speed, ascending, descending), racing (winning, losing), types of cyclists (kids, women), equipment, style, learning to ride, or legends and champions?
The milder winter has resulted in more rain than snow for our bike rides. Even if you are not rolling out in the rain, there is a chance the skies can open up before you return home so being prepared helps you be safe and comfortable on your bike. Preparations include you, your bike, while riding, and after the ride.
