Do you remember the monkeys riding tiny bicycles at Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo? This miniature tandem bicycle was made for the Zoo's monkey circus and used between 1936 and 1940. It's one of the most unusual bicycles produced by the Sydney firm, Edworthy Cycle & Motor Works.

How do you ride this bike, where's the seat? This rare gentleman's bicycle in our collection takes its name from its Danish inventor, Mikael Pedersen, and the Gloucestershire town in England where it was made.
This bike-riding prawn is one of my favourite things in the Museum’s collection. I both love it, and am deeply suspicious of it. The costume and bike were used in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony and are part of a large number of Olympic costumes we have in our collection.
