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.
This section follows the history of the bicycles from their early days on Leonardo da Vinci’s drawing board to the modern day designs that were established by Pierre Michaux and John Kemp Starley.
