    bicycle museums

    Ive stumbled across a few bike museums, but I can't always recall where they are.
    There is a great one in Lincoln (Lincolnshire, UK), with lots of early Brit bikes.
    In S.W France there is one attached to a chapel dedicated to cycling.
    see http://home-1.tiscali.nl/~edwinsel/misc_religie.htm for location.

    Any other hidden gems?

    Go to this page and scroll down to the section "Museums, Antiques, History" I've got a few good links there.

    The French chapel you mention is probably at Ghisallo. The Madonna of Ghisallo is the patron saint of cyclists.

    EditL *OOPS! I'm a chowderhead. Ghisallo is in Italy!*

    New Bremen, Ohio: www.bicyclemuseum.com

    Dayton Ohio:
    http://aviationtrailinc.org/#wrightcycle
    http://www.carillonpark.org (nothing on the site, but they just recently opened their building full of rare and exotic dayton made bicycles including tow of the last remaining Van Cleves hand built by the Wright Bros.)

    and while this is not a museum (http://www.daytoncyclingclub.org/wright_flight.htm) its going to tour all of the Wright Bros-related cycling and avation related historical sites (including museums) in the area before departing for Kitty Hawk Nc.
