This innovative exhibition will lead you through the history of cycling before, during and after the First World War. Vivid anecdotes and moving stories are used to paint an overall picture of the impact the violence of war had on this new sport. Some of the questions raised include: “How did the international cycling heroes survive the horrendous war?”, “What role did the bicycle play in the workings of the military system and warfare?” and “How did the world of bicycle racing recover after the complete destruction of the track and road infrastructure?”. Personal stories, interactive activities and multimedia apps are combined to vividly revive this neglected yet promising period in the history of cycling.Location: Tour of Flanders Visitors’ Centre
