The bicycle, despite offering cheap independent transportation, has always been an essentially social object that brings people together, inspiring group rides and gatherings of all kinds for 150 years.
The Louisiana Cycling Club loved nothing more than a fun ride and a good party. We’ll be having both tomorrow to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Pierre Lallement’s 1866 US Patent for the bicycle!
Come out for the free Second Saturday Art Ride starting at 5pm at Bar Redux, followed by the 150th Birthday Party for the Bicycle at Castillo Blanco. A good time is sure to be had by all!
