Learn about the history of bicycling at Sheldon museum talks

MIDDLEBURY — Vintage bicycle collector and cycling historian Glenn Eames will present four gallery talks about the exhibit “Pedaling Through History: 150 years of the Bicycle, The Glenn Eames Collection at the Sheldon Museum.” The talks will take place on Wednesdays, July 27, Aug. 17 and Oct. 5 at noon, and on Saturday, Sept. 3 at 1 p.m.

The gallery talks are included with museum admission (Sheldon Museum members and Historic New England members are free).
