WHA TALK: Changing Westmount Institutions – The Montreal Bicycle Club
Apr 18 @ 19:00

Westmount Historical Association logo WestmountMag.ca

On Thursday, April 18 from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Westmount Public Library, 4574 Sherbrooke W, the Westmount Historical Association presents, as part of its Winter 2019 Lecture Series, guest speaker Malcolm McRae, co-founder of the new Montreal Bicycle Club.

The Montreal Bicycle Club, established in 1878, was one of the first bicycle clubs in North America and one of three founding clubs of the M.A.A.A. Born in the penny farthing era, the club blossomed during the worldwide bicycle craze of the 1890s, only to suddenly disappear in the early 20th century. Now almost forgotten in a new age of bicycle popularity, its history and relevance today is explored.

Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Free for members and $5 for non-members.
