Bike Day

Did you know that when you put foot to pedal, the power generated with bike gears and chain is called torque? That twisting force causes the rotation of bicycle wheels and sends you merrily down the road.

The Exploratorium is all about human-powered machines; we’ve many biking enthusiasts on staff too, so it makes sense we feature products that embrace this culture.  

We’ve got books like Velo: Bicycle Culture and Design, and Cyclopedia: It’s All about the Bike, to beautiful blank ones to jot down your adventures in, like the leather-bound Bicycle Travel Journal, and Bike Collage Blank Notebook.  With the Bison Letterpress Bicycle Stationary Set let your pen pals know what you’ve discovered while trekking your favorite routes. Make small adjustments and repairs with the 6-in-1 Hex Set. High on our list: Safety! The Kikkerland Flasher Bike Light Set means no excuses for not having lights on your night rides.
