Expo of Petr Šimpach – Bílovec Museum, Czech Republic

Exhibition "BICYCLE from birth to the second half of the 20th century"

Petr Šimpach, a student from Bílovec, has been collecting vintage bikes since he was thirteen. He perceives this passion of his as an activity that saves a piece of history for future generations and can thus, at least in a small way, contribute to ensuring that it is not forgotten. You can view the complete collection of Repeko Cycles (@repeco_cycles) supplemented by exhibits loaned by the Moravan and Elegant associations in Ostrava in Bílovec Museum.

The whole exhibition is a very nice achievement of a passionate young collector. Congratulations and fingers crossed! You can visit the exhibition from Tuesday 24 January to Tuesday 28 February 2023 during the opening hours of the Bílovec Museum.

The development of the tire is precisely the reason why we included the Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile among the cycling museums. Blending with the development of the bicycle is very close.

The second and most important reason was the ongoing MOTUS exhibition.

Expo Motus: The Prehistory of the Automobile - Museo Galileo – Italy +++++

The dream of autonomous movement, independent of human and animal energy, is as old as the history of mankind. Its first expressions are lost in antiquity and are reflected in art, poetry and literature.

In thirteen stages, they take the visitor on an ideal journey that begins in Mesopotamia in the third millennium BC and ends with Karl Benz’s automobile in 1886. In between, there are extraordinary projects, which, from time to time, spring from intuitions destined to become a turning point in the field of automobility.

Exhibition Dates 08.04.2022 – 25.09.2022
