Bicycle Eclectic: Adventure Cycling Association's National Bicycle Touring Portrait Collection will be opening July 9, 2010 at the Yakima Valley Museum. The Missoula based Adventure Cycling Association was established in 1973 to cater to the growing number of American touring cyclists. The nonprofit organization produces long-distance touring maps, and a magazine, and runs group tours for its 40,000-plus members worldwide. Many of the members make a point of including the Missoula office of Adventure Cycling in their tour itinerary. Adventure Cycling art director Greg Siple became fascinated with this wonderful parade of visitors and, in the summer of 1982, began making black and white portraits of them and their bikes. And now, nearly 3,000 portraits later, Greg has put some of these riders and bikes back on the road for a grand tour. Old and young, men and women, straight-laced and bizarre, tragic and triumphant, there is something here for everyone. Bicycle Eclectic will be on exhibit through October 24, 2010.
