Cyclepedia to PDX

Last year I got the book "Cyclepedia", which is essentially a catalogue of the most impressive collection of bicycles in the world, the Embacher Collection in Vienna.  It covers an incredible range of history, bikes from all over the world, all eras, all genres -- road, mountain, track, touring, tandem, folding, cargo, urban, and other designs.  The common themes among the 100 bikes are innovation and stylish design, indeed, iconic design.
The book is available on Amazon.com, and the content (plus 360 degree photos) is now also an ipad app.

Now, I am told that the collection will be on show from June 8 to September 8, 2013 at the Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon.  Another great reason to be in Portland at some point during the summer months.
