'Wheel Fever' Book Talk and Bike Ride in Milwaukee
Join Jesse Gant and Nicholas Hoffman, co-authors of "Wheel Fever: How Wisconsin Became a Great Bicycling State," for a discussion of the history of Milwaukee's early bike riders and bicycling clubs, shops, racetracks and manufacturers. Following the talk, the authors will lead a one-hour bike tour of downtown Milwaukee's historic bicycling sites — such as the site of a velocipede rink — that ends back at the Milwaukee County Historical Society. A book signing will follow. You do not have to participate in the bike ride to attend the book talk (or vice versa).
