Cycles of Interest: Boston Bike History Lecture
October 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
A Loring Greenough House “Tuesdays in the Parlor” presentation
Bike riding is especially popular today, not only as recreation and sport but also as a serious mode of commuting around town. The activity has enjoyed varying phases of enthusiasm since its advent in the late 19th century. Cycling historian Lorenz J. Finison will give a presentation on the place of bicycling in Boston's culture from 1879 to present day, as well as special look at its historical presence in Jamaica Plain and a sneak preview of his upcoming book on the bicycling renaissance. Join us at Loring Greenough House for this installment of our “Tuesdays in the Parlor” lecture series. Light refreshments will be served.
Lorenz J. Finison is author of the award-winning book, Boston’s Cycling Craze, 1880-1900: A Story of Race, Sport, and Society.
