Gary Sanderson has been collecting and refurbishing antique bicycles from the 19th Century since 1994, and boasts a collection of almost 200 antique bikes. Twelve (12) of these bikes will be on display at 3RDnature for one month beginning on Oct. 25, 2008 and extending through Nov. 21, 2008. Among the items included in this exhibit will be a Hobby Horse from 1819, high wheels from the late 1800’s, two tandem bicycles (front-to-back and side-by-side) and a children’s high wheel, as well as photos of bicycle artwork from that time period. A high wheel will even be available for test riding for those who are skilled and feeling daring! Please join us for a wine and cheese reception with Gary Sanderson on Saturday night, Oct. 25 @ 7:00 pm, and return on Nov. 1 @ 7:00 pm for Gary’s presentation entitled “The First Bicycles and Their Importance in the 19th Century (an illustrated presentation).” Or come by 3RDnature any time between Oct. 25 and Nov. 21 during our normal business hours (Sun: 9-6; Mon.-Wed: 10-6; Thurs: 12-8; Fri: 10-5) to view the exhibit.
