Pedalers  Bicycle Museum to open for travelers to Wheelmen National Meet

A trip to Missouri for the Wheelmen Annual Meet would not be complete without a visit to the Pedalers Bicycle Museum in Springfield, Missouri.  Created and owned by Missouri Captain and past Wheelmen Commander James Allen, the Pedalers Bicycle Museum is a hugely popular museum full of the most unique and amazing bicycles in the West.  Highlights of the collection are the “Lamplighter” Bicycle, used in New York City in the late 1800s, allowing the rider to stay mounted on the 7 foot frame while lighting the street lamps.  Other highlights include a bicycle assembled by the Wright Brothers, a 12-seater bicycle, and a collection of high wheel ordinaries ridden across America by Wheelmen Nolan Bay and Jack Castor.

James will have the museum open the day before the Wheelmen Annual Meet starts on Tuesday, July 23 from 10 am until 6 pm.  Springfield is a 100 mile drive from Sedalia, which makes a great chance to see many of the treasures James has collected through the years.  Plan on making a trip to the Pedalers Museum an addition to your itinerary for the Wheelmen National Meet.  The Pedalers Bicycle Museum is located on 328 East Commercial Street in Springfield, Missouri.  You can call James at 417-576-1464 for more information.

The registration form for the 52nd Annual Wheelmen Meet in historic Sedalia Missouri is now online!  Meet dates are July 24-28, 2019.

Missouri Captain and former Wheelman Commander James Allen is pulling out all the stops to make the 52nd Annual Meet of the Wheelmen something you will never forget!

Sedalia has so much to offer, the cradle of American ragtime music, the end of the famous Sedalia Trail made famous by TV's "Rawhide", the beautiful Queen City of the Prairie, shop the most fabulous Victorian and Edwardian costume shop in the West, hear Mark Twain speak of "Taming the Bicycle", try your hand at steer roping and the cow chip toss at the bicycle games!

The Missouri Wheelmen are promising a rollicking good time for one and all!  Click below to print a copy of the Registration form, below.  Direct all questions to Captain James Allen at or call him at (417)576-1464.

I will check into this and let everyone know.

Have a hankering for great Bluegrass music down by the river?  Bring your bike and attend "Bluegrass in the Park" this Saturday August 11.

There will be demonstrations at noon (CST time) and a group ride at 1:00 pm.  A local historian will give a presentation about bicycling in Henderson at the turn of the century at 2:30 pm at the railroad depot.

Henderson is a great city with a small town heart!  For more information, contact Alison Torpey at
