The Pryor Dodge Collection of bicycle history comprises over 2,200 artifacts from Europe and the U.S. This world class collection traces the first hundred years of the bicycle’s evolution beginning in 1817 and has been exhibited with great success throughout the U.S. and in England. All the objects are original and many are unique.

By 1900, the bicycle had a profound influence on society, producing a transformation that literally affected everyone. This is evident in the collection and its exhibitions, which balance the machine's technical and design aspects, and inspires viewers to experience its impact on society through magnificent posters, graphics and related phenomena.

The Bicycle, an illustrated book by Pryor Dodge, “unquestionably the most finely illustrated history of cycling ever produced” (The Guardian), explores in-depth this remarkable invention.
