National Bike to Work Day

Kenwood Bicycle, front cover.

Today, May 18th is National Bike to Work Day! Did you hop on your velocipede or walking machine for your commute today?

If you missed it, don’t worry. National Bike Month is celebrated throughout the month of May. Our Galaxy of Images has an entire collection of bicycle imagery to get you in the mood!


The collection includes one of our favorites, the cover of a Kenwood Bicycles catalog from 1895:

Kenwood Bicycle Mfg. Co., Catalogue for 1895 , 1895

And Columbia


It also includes treasures from the Rouse-Duryea Cycle Co.:

Rouse-Duryea Cycle Co. Sylph Cycles: Spring-Frame Safety , 1892


And Pope Manufacturing Company:

Pope Manufacturing Company Columbia Bicycles , 1912


  1. Well I’ve been using my Hyosung GT650R superbike to commute to office daily, but after the recent fuel hikes, I’ve also started using the motor-less bikes.

    And, oh well, it’s good to see that you’ve moved the blog finally! Even I’m now trying to move my blog to Typepad, as WordPress has become extremely vulnerable these days, and I hope to transform things over the next 2 weeks – Cheers anyway for revamping the blog!
