Cycling in Lithgow - Guest Speaker History Event and Forum

Lithgow Library is extending History Week into a Pop History Month in September 2017 with a display of vintage racing bicycles and racing memorabilia belonging to Clive Laing, vintage bicycles from the collection of Ian Rufus and a display of Pop Culture collectables belonging to library staff.

Also to celebrate History Month there will be a speaker event and forum on Thursday 28th September 2017, from 10.30 to 11.30am, led by Gerri Laing, speaking about her family’s cycling history, and Ian Rufus speaking about his bicycles on display at the library.

When we think of Pop Culture we think of the mid-20th Century mass media influenced fashion trends. One of the booms was that of the bicycle which had its biggest wave of popularity in the 60s and 70s. ‘Everyone will have a story about their childhood bike riding escapades’ said Mayor Stephen Lesslie, ‘come along to the library to hear the cycling tales of Clive and Gerri Laing, and Ian Rufus, and also to share your own bike riding tales’.

Of special interest to local history lovers and cycling fans are a much repaired 1920s bicycle with a connection to Glen Davis, the world first portable, folding bicycle, and two racing bicycles from the 1980s.

Bookings can be made to attend this free History Talk, which will include light refreshments, by contacting the Lithgow Library on 6352 9100.
