The History of Bicycles

An Abridged Timeline

Bicycles have a fairly varied history. They've been around for almost two hundred years now, and they have evolved significantly during that time. The first bicycles were built completely different and were not nearly as comfortable as now. In the below timeline, I have picked out what I thought to be the biggest, most interesting aspects of the bicycle's history to give you some idea of what they've been, so you can be properly amazed by what they are now.
