the bicycle: a brief history

Today we take a little ride down memory lane courtesy of our friends at the Pedaling History Bicycle Museum. Join us, as we learn about:

The Draisienne or Walking Machine of 1817

The Velocipede or Boneshaker (1865)

The High Wheel Bicycle

The Ladies' High Wheel Tricycle

The Pneumatic Tire of the Gay Nineties (1890s, that is)

The 20th Century Kid's Bike

And of course, the present day Village Bicycle
