What's On

From family STEAM learning to interactive exhibitions. There's something for everyone.

Gearing Up: From Saddle to Spoke

More cycles were made in Coventry in the 1890s then in any other city in the world; and during that time it was referred to as the ‘Cycle Capital of the World’.  

This is an online exhibition only.

From the introduction of the earliest cycles, the allure of freedom and speed that they offer has been a positive part of our culture. Coventry and similar cities around the world have produced and celebrated cycles for more than a century.  

Over the years, cycling has developed into many different interests and styles. The cycles themselves have evolved to meet the needs of the many different ways you can enjoy cycling. Bikes for gravel tracks, stunt riding and commuting are all different in style and design. 

View the online exhibition now.

As part of the exhibition we are launching ‘Behind the Frame’ – which explores how bicycles can be a catalyst for a new lease of life and new opportunities, on the 26th of February 2020.


As part of this, Coventry Transport Museum commissioned artist Jaskirt Boora to uncover the stories of people and their bikes through connecting to pioneering community initiatives, regional cycling equity schemes and Coventry’s public.
