    Nice!

    I am aware of it... and it is on my list of places to visit. It is only about 600 miles from my house

    This one is SO COOL with its build in rear fender! I would have never guessed it's that old.

    Every time we drive down Interstate 75, I want to stop, but we are always running late for some other thing, so we don't. I may just have to make a road trip myself, since no one else in the family would want to spend more than 30 minutes waiting for me. It is only about 2 1/2 hours from me.

    Been there.

    Great museum. Low cost of entry. The bikes do change some. Bicycle Museum of America Be aware their Saturday hours are short, 11 am - 2 pm.

    If you come from out of the area, make a few days trip out of it and make Dayton, Springfield or Xenia Ohio your base. 300 plus miles of paved bike trails in the area with lots of community acceptance of bicycles. Recently rode a century from Urbana to Xenia to Dayton and back to Urbana.

    Thanks for the heads up on that!

    I have worked over on the other side of the state (Circleville and Mansfield), and while the cycling was good there was not a lot of cycle specific infrastructure.

    That's a great museum, and only $3.00 for admission. I made it my primary destination over a week-long bike camping tour that I did back in May. They have a tremendous collection, and as look566 stated, they rotate their displays on a regular basis, so there's always new stuff to see.

    I lived within an hour of it for 25 years, and never made it, having passed through Bremen a dozen or so times, to boot.

    My bike group makes a car-road trip in the dead of winter and we make it a destination once every five years. One member commented "I didn't realize every modern part of my bike was invented a hundred years ago." It's a great museum for anyone who bicycles.

    I have been curious about that place, nice to hear it is worth a visit. I am only a couple hours south and my wife's family is in Springboro so I am going to try and make it on the next trip.
