GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes

Discover the science, technology, engineering, art and math in the world's most recognizable mode of transportation - the bicycle! 

Since its inception in the late 19th century, the bicycle changed how people live, work, and play. From schoolyards, city streets, to the world's greatest mountain bike trails in Bentonville, we encounter bicycles every day. Visit GEAR UP and learn how bikes work, the history and evolution of bicycles, and the science, technology and design found in this elegant example of basic science principles and advanced materials.
