Thumbnail for - Cyclepedia: A Century of Iconic Bicycle Design

Drawing from the one-of-a-kind collection of Viennese designer Michael Embacher, this exhibition promises something pure and simple: bike porn. From landmark racing models and vintage cruisers to folding bikes, a parachute bike, and even an ice bike (with a skate for its front wheel), the collection showcases not only the engineering behind the simple, sweat-powered vehicle of locomotion, but the sheer artistry that has elevated it from a tool to an obsession. Having been displayed just a few times in Europe, the collection makes its first and only stateside stop at the Portland Art Museum—another yellow jersey for our town’s growing cycling cred.

 

Read our review of the Cyclepedia exhibition during the art museum's best cross-promotion ever: a partnership with the World Naked Bike Ride in which riders paid one dollar per item of clothing they wore in.
