History Museum Bicycle Tour September 6th

Area residents will have a chance to revisit Appleton’s early bicycling history on a bicycle tour on September  6 at 5:30 p.m. with the History Museum.  The ride will stop at the sites of the National Circuit race in 1896, first velocipede reported in Appleton, and the city’s first bicycle path.  Along the route riders will learn about the city’s first “bloomer girls” and bicycle shops.  To register, call Lee Hribal at 920-735-9370 ex. 104 ($3.50 for museum members and $5.00 for non-members).

There's so much to like about Downtown Appleton. Thanks to its 60+ distinctive shops ... 50+ casual, fine dining and ethnic restaurants... nearly 30 pubs, clubs and live music hot spots ... a leading performing arts center and world-class visual arts gallery ... family-friendly activities and attractions ... a variety of coffee shops and gathering places ... PLUS Northeast Wisconsin's best events, Downtown Appleton is a favorite destination for many -- and it just keeps getting better and better!
