KOERS Museum of Cycle Racing Roeselare – Belgium +++++

The collection consists of three main categories: the (racing) bicycle collection, the cycling sports collection and the documentary collection.

BICYCLE COLLECTION

A defining feature of the museum is the KOERS bicycle collection. Providing a representative view of how cycling and competitive cycling have developed from the early days to the present, the collection of 300-plus bicycles covers a total period of almost 200 years.

DOCUMENTARY COLLECTION

The documentary collection covers the period from the late 19th century (the early days of bicycles/competitive cycling) to the present from an international perspective. The documentary collection contains more than 2,400 publications, 180 running metres of magazines and newspapers, 30 running metres of archives and hundreds of thousands of photographs. The KOERS documentary collection is quite unlike the collections of other cycling-related establishments, which is exactly why the collection policy focuses so much on this third category.
