All the more remarkable the bicycle history exhibit was that ran for severals month at the Pasadena, California Historical Museum, with the help and support of CR member Chuck Schmidt and other bicycle enthusiasts in the area. This was just two seasons ago, and was very well attended. Hopefully all the publicity the bike sport is getting these last years will begin to have positive fruition.
