Vintage Bicycle Exhibition

The Faulkner Cycle Collection

We have a unique collection of 40 vintage bicycles on exhibition, mainly nineteenth century bicycles, including a Penny Farthing and a Singleton English velocipede, or ‘boneshaker’.

Bicycles are synonymous with Oxford, especially amongst students. It was students’ enthusiasm for cycling that led William Morris to repair and then build bicycles (prior to moving into car repair, hire and finally manufacture).

Our museum has had a few cycles over the years, so when we were offered loan of a collection owned by Mr Faulkner and a purpose built display area devoted to them, it seemed a natural progression to include these wonderful cycles at the museum.

It wouldn't be Oxford without bikes !
