Bicycles spanning 200 years of cycling and a wealth of cycling memorabilia are on display in the museum, which is located in the Automobile Palace, Temple Street. The museum is home to more than 250 cycles, representing the historical development of cycling from the early 1800s to the present day.

A copy of the first British bicycle, nicknamed a Hobby Horse, made by Johnsons of London in 1818, is on display together with various Victorian solid tyred machines and cycles through the 1900s and early 2000s.
