I read about this place online and thought I had a good idea of what to expect. I was wrong. I thought the first floor was impressive to say the least, but when I walked into the 2nd floor showroom, I couldn't help but gasp. In---CREDible! This display/collection of bikes is overwhelming. And what I found touching was, the owner kept, framed, and diplays some hand-written notes from those who owned a few of the bikes on display. One tells the story of how she came to donate her deceased brother's childhood bike to the museum...what a wonderful man and father he was, and how he would have been happy to see the bike he rode as a kid on display. It brought tears to my eyes thinking about how much sentimental value there is in the bikes we ride and love, especially "back in the day" when kids would see those shiny Schwinns in the store window and save up money from their paper route or, as one story said, their Confirmation, and would burst through the doors the moment they had enough money to buy the bike, knowing it meant what it still means to so many of us "bicycle geeks" today....freedom. This place was definitely worth going to. The bikes were amazing, the 2nd floor showroom layout and floors were beautiful, and one thing my husband noted...not a speck of dust on any of those bikes...even the ones on the ceiling. It is clear that there is a lot of pride there, as it should be. It's off the beaten path, and a little hard to locate, but ride on out there and follow those handmade signs. You'll be glad you did.
