    Traces of Bicycle History on the Land

    Join Velo Vermont Vintage for an evening with local author and Associate Professor of Historic Preservation at the University of Vermont Robert McCullough presenting and signing his newest book "Old Wheelways - Traces of bicycle history on the land."
    "Old Wheelways" captures the incredible development of the bicycle in its history, to the first long-distance rides and adventurous tours by bike, as well as the evolution of the first journals and magazines about travels by bicycle. Imagine going on a multi-day bike tour, without road names, maps or google maps and GPS! Relying on other riders descriptions, diaries, journals and pictures, this type of bicycle touring made for a real adventure. Also, it led to the development of an extended network of bicycle paths around New England and the country.
