Celebrating the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain, ‘Cycle Revolution’ at London’s Design Museum looks at everything from the expertly engineered machines used by Olympic level competitors to every day commuter bikes. It brings together not only the bicycles themselves, but also the rest of the culture – clothing, accessories, equipment photography, and film are all showcased in the exhibition. Britain’s flourishing bespoke frame building scene is also represented in a workshop that demonstrates the skills and materials needed to create a custom machine.

With cyclists divided in the show into Olympian ‘High Performers’, all-terrain ‘Thrill Seekers’, inner city ‘Urban Riders’, and the ‘Cargo Bikers’ who work on two wheels, the exhibition will be informative for journeymen and experts alike. Beautifully curated, interesting, and comprehensive, we can’t recommend Cycle Revolution enough.

The exhibition is open until the 30th June 2016 and tickets are available here.
