Buffalo's love affair with the bicycle was all-encompassing. By the late 1890s it had involved a significant percentage of Buffalo's population. Its exciting effect on society and sports was no less than its impact on business and commerce.Buffalo's Bicycleswill introduce you to some of the people who shaped this little-known heritage that left influences and impressions on Buffalo for decades thereafter.
It you're not a native Buffalonian or Western New Yorker, you will still learn the basic bicycle history background with its emphasis on America's fervent development of the machine, the many patents, the social aspects, the Good Roads Movement, and the exciting racing. Buffalo's rich heritage in text and photographs quickly makes you aware that this truly colorful, dramatic, and influential period affected much of the eastern United States.
Was there a bicycle in your past?? Even if not,many non-bicycle people find that this history has surprising asides that kindle and tickle much nostalgia. The taken-for-granted bicycle, through its popular and everyday usage, has touched nearly everyone's life at one time or another, generally in a pleasurable and memorable way.
