Ride On! Historic Bicycles from the
Collection of Keith Pariani
Thru September 30
In the 1890s the bicycle took over the hearts and minds of Americans. By the early twentieth century, almost 300 bicycle manufacturing firms were established in the United States. Swept up in the craze for cycling, the Lightner Museum’s historic building, the Hotel Alcazar, offered its own bicycle academy, allowing its guests to tour Gilded Age St. Augustine on two wheels. Drawn from the collection of St. Augustine bicycle aficionado Keith Pariani, “Ride On!” features bicycles selected by Pariani as important examples of design in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century bicycle manufacturing.
