History of the Bicycle

On Word Bicycle Day, we can celebrate the innovative history and freedom of the modern bicycle by learning more about it! The bicycle was invented in 1817 by Karl Drais as a pedal-less vehicle. It evolved into the “boneshaker” in the 1860s and the “Penny Farthing” in the 1870s. The safety bicycle, introduced in the late 1880s, revolutionized cycling. Further advancements, pneumatic tires, and gears led to our modern bikes.

The Impact of Bicycles

The bicycle serves as a global solution with local impact, providing a nimble, affordable, and lightweight mode of transportation in an increasingly crowded world. Since 1950, the global population has tripled from 2.5 billion to 7.7 billion people, and projections indicate it may reach 11 billion by 2100. In such a scenario, relying on individual cars during peak hours would harm urban environments. However, the bicycle offers an alternative, helping mitigate transportation challenges and reducing congestion, making it a valuable solution for sustainable urban mobility.
