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. Gary Sanderson is an active Wheelman who enjoys riding long distances on his high wheel bicycle from the 1880's. In 2004, he rode from Perth Amboy, NJ to Newport, OR, covering 3,600 miles in 60 days. And in 2006, he rode from Boston to New York City to publicize the first ride around the world in 1894/5 by Annie Londonderry, a Jewish mother from Boston. 3RDnature (www.3rdnaturecycling.com) is a full service pro road bike shop located at 1382 Queen Anne Road in Teaneck, NJ.
