Marin Museum of Bicycling

My buddy and I finally drove up north an hour to visit the museum. Had a great time drooling over the bikes. Too bad Charlie Kelly and Joe Breeze weren't there today or I would have introduced myself. Here are some of the pictures I took. The rest can be seen here in my album: https://www.flickr.com/gp/75643561@N00/p2aNgt

Bicycle museum? This is a bicycle museum. (Paul Hogan, knife, that's a knife )
. P.S. You need to view the video direct on youtube.


Bicycle Heaven

No, I think this is a Bicycle Museum.

In all seriousness, I would love to see the one in Marin and Bicycle Heaven. I have been to the one in Japan and was lucky enough to get a behind the scenes tour.

This is cool because it looks like it is more professional and organized. Probably more education too. Looks like it is run by a group or government organization.

Bicycle Heaven is simply one man's obsession with bicycles (and pretty much anything else for that matter). Hard to tell from the Japan museum photos but I would bet Craig has far more bicycles. More does not mean better but it certainly makes it mind boggling. And there is not much to see "behind the scenes" at Craigs place. That's because pretty much every inch is dedicated to the museum and his online business . There is a repair shop. He would probably let you tour that too if you asked.

Nice thing about Bicycle Heaven too is it is near the start of the GAP. Great way to start a tour.
