The Return of Velocipedes and Windmills!

If you missed one of my recent fun lectures about velocipedes and windmills, here’s your chance to catch up and meet some other fabulous Charleston folks at Affordabike and the American College of the Building Arts.

Goddard_bicycle copy (1)On Tuesday, October 7th, I’ll be talking about “The Velocipede Invasion of 1869: Charleston’s First Bicycles” at Affordabike (573 King St. 29403). This laid-back, free event begins at 7 p.m. and is co-sponsored by Palmetto Brewery and the bicycle rights advocacy group, Bike Law. This will certainly be a fun evening, so please join us and raise a toast to our fair city’s bicycle history.

On Wednesday, October 8th, I’ll present a heavily-illustrated lecture on “Building Windmills in Early South Carolina” at the American College of the Building Arts (21 Magazine St. 29401). This free event begins at 5:30 p.m. and is part of the college’s Mary Scott Guest lecture series. If you’ve never visited the old “haunted” Charleston District Jail, this is your chance to wander through the building and hear a fun lecture about an amazing part of Charleston’s forgotten past.
