History Of Bicycle
The First Bicycle, some books said that Father and son Pierre and Ernest Michaux made the first bicycle in the 1860s, but Historians said that it was made before that.
Pierre And Ernest Michaux were the first people to make the modern pedal and cranks in 1861.
The Walking Machine, 1817 Baron von Drais invented the walking machine that would help him get around the royal gardens faster.
The Velocipede, this two-wheeled riding machine was in 1865, when pedals were applied directly to the front wheel. This bicycle was called the velocipede because it was faster than all of the other bicycles at the time.
The High Wheel Bicycle, 1870 was the first all-metal machine that appeared. The pedals were still attached directly to the front wheel. Solid rubber tires and the long spokes provided a much smoother ride than the previous bike.
The High Wheel Tricycle. This was the bicycle that the girls rode because of their skirts and the chance of them falling off the high wheel made them ride these.
The Pneumatic Tire This bicycle was made in 1898. The guy that made this made the bicycle for his son so he could have a more comfortable ride.
