BMX is one of the most popular types of bicycles today, but its history reaches only several decades to the past. Here you can learn how the first models are made, and how big impact they had on the history of cycling and bicycle sports.
History of bicycle started with the first two wheeled transportation device made by German Baron Karl Drais in early 19th century. His simple Dandy Horse design provided inspiration to countless other inventors who very quickly created modern bicycles.
The early history of bicycles was a birthing ground of many interesting transportation devices that resembled modern bicycles. Without access to chain drive systems, those early velocipedes came in many shapes and sizes.
History of bicycles cannot be told without mentioning Penny-farthing, a very specific type of bicycle that was highly popular during end of Victorian Era and before arrival of modern “safety” bicycles.
