Mon 10 June, 2019 @ 10:30 – 12:30
Espai la Senieta, Moraira
Cheda Panajotovic and Brian Nicholls

Date: 10th June 2019

Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)

Subject: The History of The Bicycle – Not Intended for Biking Enthusiasts!

Lecturer: John Hopwood

This will be a light-hearted but informative talk on the history of bicycles.

It will include details of the earliest known forms of bicycle through to the latest developments as well as some surprising details concerning the best selling vehicle in the world – the Chinese Flying Pigeon with more than five hundred million produced since it was first introduced in 1950.

The talk will also include some irreverent looks at those MAMILS (Middle Aged Men in Lycra Tights!) we see hobbling round the local coffee bars.
