Collezione velocipedi e biciclette antiche A. & C. Azzini, Soresina, Italy +++++

We had the opportunity to personally walk through the entire museum accompanied by both owners in 2022. It was a huge pleasure to see not only a cross-section of the bike's development, but entire blocks dedicated to local brands. This is what a museum should look like! This is the reason why collectors from all over the world will come and discover new and unknown technical treasures here. Their museum and exhibits are fantastic. The beautiful philosophy and attitude towards collecting is convincing. Alfredo and Carlo Azzini say: “We paid great attention to the conservation and restoration carried out in our restoration center. We study every detail, every difference. During many years of passionate research, we were guided by only one consciousness: although we are now the momentary owners of these treasures, our mission is only and exclusively one idea: to preserve and protect them and finally leave them to future generations with full respect for bicycle history."

Musée Carnavalet, Paris – France +++++

The mechanical drive of vehicles is a fascinating story provoking endless debates as to whether it is the forerunner of the bicycle, i.e. the motorcycle or the automobile.

Wheelchairs are a major advance in enabling independence for people with walking difficulties. The first self-propelled wheelchair has been attributed to John Joseph Merlin, the ‘ingenious mechanick’, in the early 19th century and his ‘gouty chair’ is exhibited at Kenwood House. Research would suggest that comparable chairs existed in France as early as 1751 and the French Revolutionary, Georges Couthon, used one to get around Paris. A later design, also attributed to Merlin, the invalid wheelchair, features large wheels with outer hoops for the occupant to grasp and this is the true ancestor of the modern wheelchair.

Colnago museum – Cambiago, Italy +++++

Colnago is a traditional Italian bike and frame brand, the most Italian of Italians and the most classic of classics. Colnago has a sound, a rich history, a prestigious present, something that can be called the spirit of the brand and a gloriola exceeding the number of medals, records, rainbow jerseys of world champions, national titles of countries of almost all of Europe, scalps of the most prestigious races.

Right in the factory there is a large hall with the most interesting things that have been produced. Unfortunately, the bikes were moved out in 2022 and the plan is to build a separate museum. Unfortunately, concrete steps have not yet been taken. We had a great time with the bikes during our visit, so I share them in the gallery as a memory and thank you for using Bikeradar.com and Cyklonovinky.cz
