Lecture on the History of Cycling Sept. 21

By: Cienna Madrid   Published 8:46 am / September 13, 2017

Accompanying the Student Union Fine Arts Gallery’s student-curated exhibition, “Cycling Through: A Story of Community and Change,” George Knight will present his talk “Bikes Are the Answer: A Cyclorama of the First 200 Years” at 6 p.m. Sept. 21 in the Hatch C Ballroom of the Student Union Building.

With emphasis on “primitive” bicycles of the 19th century, and in celebration of the timeless value of bicycling as a human activity, this lecture will follow a not-so-linear course along the bicycle’s historical time line.

Knight is a lifelong bicyclist who also has taken part in local and statewide advocacy efforts. He teaches in Boise State University’s Department of Philosophy.

The exhibit, “Cycling Through: A Story of Community and Change,” runs through Sept. 24 in the Student Union Fine Arts Gallery.

The Student Union Exhibition Series is a program of the Boise State University Student Union within the Division of Campus Operations. The series features 10 months of original exhibitions by students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community artists in traditional and pop-up gallery environments. Learn more at and visit for daily visiting hours.
