THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the 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.
