Cyclist of Borg
The Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation is exited to announce the installation of its latest exhibit "The Bicycle Takes Off." This national touring exhibit, made possible by local wheelman Dave Toppin, is making its final stop at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation January 8th and runs through May 2009. The exhibit chronicles the history of the bicycle.

Along the way they will discover what bloomers and the bicycle have in common, how Springfield, MA became a bicycling mecca and the true meaning of "taking a header." An opening reception will be hosted from 5 to 8 p.m. January 8, 2009. Opening reception admission is $10.00 per person (members are free) and includes light refreshments, wine and beer and music.
