There will be an optional Bicycle Ride Around Washington, D.C., on August 10th following the end of the Conference for those who are interested.
This Conference is open to all persons who are interested in the history of cycling: this invitation goes out to those who wish to present a paper as well as to those who want to attend simply to enjoy the conference. There will be sessions devoted to the presentation of papers on all aspects of cycling history, there will be an exhibition of historically important bicycles and other objects connected to cycling history, and there will be a field trip to interact with some of the related objects in the vicinity of the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., area.
These International Cycling History Conferences are held each year in a different city with the emphasis changing so as to encourage coverage of events and developments related to the invention and use of bicycles, tricycles, and related wheeled vehicles that occurred throughout the world. Recent conferences have been held in Freehold, NJ, USA (2009); Prague, Czech Republic (2010); Paris, France (2011); Roeselare, Belgium (2012); and Lisbon, Portugal (2013).
