Joy Boone, owner of Boone’s Cycles in the museum district(http://www.danielboonecycles.com/), and my friend Mark Chance (bicycle enthusiast) have teamed up with other local bike icons to start up Houston’s first bicycle museum. The only thing cooler than the bikes they have stashed away in attics, storage rooms, garages – are the stories they tell. It’s a fun group to be a part of.
To get things rolling, we had a photo shoot with some of the bikes that will be featured in the museum. For now, they are only a few displayed here, about 30 on my flickr page http://flickr.com/photos/saracatherine/sets/ , and soon many more on the museum’s web site (currently under construction).
We need volunteers to help with every aspect of starting a museum from cataloguing bikes, to PR, fundraising, etc. Contact me if you are interested on more information, would like to join the team, or just want to stop by if we ever pull out more awesome bikes to play with – or add yours!
