Click on the link below to see a video of Missouri Captain and former Commander James Allen talk about his Pedalers Museum on KY3 TV's "3 Things to Know!"

SPRINGFIELD, MO --- We visited a hidden treasure in the Ozarks with Kaitlyn McConnell of Ozarks Alive. Ozarks Alive is an online magazine dedicated to preserving the area’s unique heritage and history for future generations.

On this adventure, we explored the Pedalers Bicycle Museum on Commercial in Springfield.

"Oftentimes I just stumble across places that are really cool and this is one of those examples. It's, you know, a bicycle museum right here on Commercial Street called Pedalers Bicycle Museum. And, it's just a very unique place that's filled with dozens of really interesting bikes, " Kaitlyn explained.

James Allen is the owner of Pedalers Bicycle Museum. James' collection includes bikes from the 1880's and even earlier.

"We go back, to 1817 the bike which had no pedals, was the first bike. And then in 1869, they went with the pedals on the front wheel and the 1880's, the big bike and in 1890, they were a regular sized bike like what we know today," Allen told us.......
