Exhibition: The Bicycle
From 4-meter sprints to the 4,800 km Race Across America, ever since bicycles have been around, people have wanted to race them. See how fast you can race through this exhibition about how bicycles got faster.

Four years later, the detachable tire was introduced by Édouard Michelin.
