The Bicycle Museum of America: The bicycle has to be the world’s most popular vehicle. The Bicycle Museum of America roates over 1,000 bicycles through its displays featuring over 300 at a time. It offers viewers an opportunity to see how it all began. At the museum bicycles are displayed according to eras. See the 1892 Victor, which must have seemed like the Rolls Royce in its time. It sold for $130 – during a time when salaries were generally $18 per month. The museum also offers glimpses of the 1880s high-wheeler designs and the 1886 model of the bicycle-built-for-two. More modern bicycles, including race models, are displayed. But, let’s not forget the balloon tires of the 1940s and 1950s. New Bremen offers a notable museum in a historic setting.
