Historic Newton Presents: Stories from a Century of Boston's Cycling History

Learn about the importance of bicycling to Boston’s culture for more than a century with author Lorenz J. Finison. Find out more about the Tour de Trump as it passed through Newton; the big bike nexus at Norumbega Park and the Lakes District; Newtonville’s Abbott Basset; and Kittie Knox, a young bi-racial seamstress well known in Boston cycling during the 1890s, and then largely forgotten. Follow highlights in racing, touring, commuting, bikeways, rails-to-trails, bike-trains, bike building, and women's cycling from the 1880s through the bicycling renaissance in the 1970s

Programming on Comcast Ch. 9, RCN Ch. 13, Verizon Ch. 33
