Field Trip Friday at ISM – Bike Simulator at Major Taylor Exhibit
In partnership with the Indiana State Museum we are excited to bring our Bike Simulator to the “Major Taylor – Fastest Cyclists in The World” Exhibit! Come and ride with on us in the East Wing of the Museum and then enjoy learning about one of the most iconic figures in our city’s history on level 3.
The Bike Simulator and the Major Taylor Exhibit are included with purchase of museum admission.
About the Exhibit: Go inside the life and career of champion bicycle racer and Indianapolis native Marshall “Major” Taylor. In this interactive experience, venture into the training room to learn how Taylor developed his speed and agility through a strict regimen of exercise and diet. Discover the pervasive racism that Taylor battled – from his competitors and in his hometown – and hear from great contemporary cyclists about how Taylor’s story has inspired a new generation of Black riders. See Taylor’s bicycle and many artifacts from the museum collection donated by his daughter Rita Sydney Taylor Brown, plus learn about bicycle safety and design, tinker with bikes and bike parts, test their skills and times on stationary bikes and more.
