London Cycles

Things to do Free

This free display at the Museum of London looks at cycling in the capital, exploring how bikes allow us to move through the city in different ways. Taking visitors back to the beginning of city cycling in the nineteenth century, it combines digital objects with historical items to offer a modern overview of cycling that should interest even non-cyclists. A key feature is a new commissioned artwork by illustrator Ugo Gattoni, creator of the iconic London 2012 work, Bicycle. In this new piece, Gattoni presents ten large-scale portraits reflecting the diversity of cyclists and cycle style at play in London today. A series of cycle-themed family events, from bike-powered cinema to BMX performance showcases and cycle art, will take place over the weekend of Sept 7-8.
