“Buffalo is A-Wheel: Parades, Runs and the Buffalo Bicycling Century Ride of 1888” with Dr. Claire Schen

12/14 @ 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Writing about Buffalo, journalist and suffragist Ada Kendal proclaimed the “City is a-wheel.” Indeed, late 19th century Buffalo was a hub of bicycle manufacturing and riding. Efforts to map routes, plan bicycle parades and events, and undertake adventurous “runs”, like the Buffalo Bicycling Club’s first Century Ride of 188, demonstrated the fervor for cycling around 1890.

Join us for this presentation on Buffalo’s cycling history by Dr. Claire Schen, a University at Buffalo professor who specializes in European and Atlantic World history.
