ADDITIONS to the museum-We continue to incorporate many auction purchases into the museum display areas. If you visited the museum “yesterday” you will see different bicycles and other items on display. A number of other items have been donated recently as well. They include the following:
- Chuck(the mirror guy) Harris’s Hypercycle recumbent and tandem donated by his wife.
- a Kona mountain bike donated by Jim Lehmann. Jim donated a Ford fusion automobile designed to coordinate with the bike last year.
- a Bickerton folding “bike in a bag” donated by Gerald Rees
- a Schwinn Corvette bicycle and a Christmas sled donated by Bob & Sally Ruh
- a French made hand crank tricycle donated by Craig & Joan Leslie

A FINAL WORD on GOBA- The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure spent 2 nights in our little town June 19th and 20th as part of their week long trek around west central Ohio. About 1500 of the cyclists visited with us at the museum-that final word-FANTASTIC!
A VISIT TO NEW BREMEN- Almost daily we hear our visitors compliment New Bremen on its neat appearance, the beautifully appointed historic buildings, and the friendly people. This is common for the entire area and the communities around New Bremen as well. We are sure you will enjoy your visit to the museum. While you are here plan to take in the restored lock and lockmaster’s house of the Miami-Erie Canal. Perhaps you would enjoy taking advantage of Lake Loramie or Grand Lake St. Marys, both just a few minutes from the museum. Maybe the rich German and Catholic heritage of the area in the Land of the Cross Tipped Churches and the world famous Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics would be of interest to you.
Come spend some time in the country! For more information see the above mentioned site and www.meccainc.org or www.newbremen.com.
We hope to see you soon at The Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen, Ohio
