As part of Wakefield Museums' celebration of Le Grand Depart we are hosting a very special event exploring Victiorian Cycling:

Experience freedom as you cast off your chaperone, sit astride your steed and embrace the new thrilling craze of the bicycle. This lively talk embraces the lives and clothes of the emancipated, cycling women of Victorian England, including the daring few who donned the shocking Bloomer Suit!
