Cycling in the City traces the bike’s transformation of urban transportation and leisure and explores the extraordinary diversity of cycling cultures in the city, past and present. The exhibition reveals the complex, creative, and often contentious relationship between New York and the bicycle, while underscoring the importance of cycling as the city confronts climate change, energy scarcity, and population growth in the years to come.

Join curator Donald Albrecht for a guided tour of the exhibition and find curriculum connections.  1.5 CTLE hours.

Free with RSVP.
