Luis Vivanco: Of Wheelmen, the New Woman, and Good Roads: Bicycling in Vermont, 1880-1920

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Luis Vivanco explores the fascinating early history of the bicycle in Vermont, a new invention that gained widespread popularity in the 1880s and 1890s. By 1920, popular interest in bicycles had waned, but it had not just been a fad: the bicycle was tied to important changes in industrial production, consumerism, new road policies and regulations, gender relations, and new cultural ideas about automobility and effortless speed. A Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau Event hosted by Kellogg-Hubbard Library and co-sponsored by Onion River Outdoors. Program is located at Onion River Outdoors.
