Gordon Hobbis and his staff at Cap's Bicycle Shop hosted a bike museum for a day as part of Sapperton Day Street Festival on Sunday.
On display were bikes from 1869 to 1900, showing the technological innovations that occurred over the years from a crank-pedaled pennyfarthing to the world's first bicycle.
The event required moving 300 of his contemporary bikes into storage so he could take down the vintage bikes that usually sit up high along the walls.
"Overnight we were able to convert the store into a museum with interpretive signage," Hobbis said.
The museum charged a $2 admission to go to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.
