World's first Bicycle

World's first Bicycle

The first bicycle is nothing like anything you see today. Baron von Drais in Germany invented the first bicycle in 1817. The Draisienne was a steerable bicycle. It was almost entirely made of wood, had no pedals, and was propelled down the street by riders who would push their feet against the ground.

The record speed was 15 km/h. These bicycles were seen but rarely until their popularity hit which was not until the 1830’s. By the year 1842 the bicycle was donning solid rubber tires.
