Celebrating contemporary cycling in Britain, from every day commuting to Olympic level competition.

During the last decade there has been an explosion of interest in bicycles. For more people than ever cycling has become a hobby, a passion and a signifier of personal identity, leading manufacturers to tailor machines to the precise specifications of their users.

This exhibition brings together the definitive bicycles of our times, exploring how public demand for greater performance is revolutionising design. They are shown alongside examples of clothing, accessories, equipment, film and photography.
