Bicycle history

The first bicycle was the German draining in 1817. The actual term, bicycle, was coined in France during the 1860s. There are other bi-wheel inventions scattered in history.

One of the most known feats of bicycle riding for health and athletic events. Kids can ride their bikes around for enjoyment. Adults can do the same as well as a ride to benefit health. There are bicycle races, such as the Tour de France; we should all recognize that name. There are also triathlons that include a bike ride mixed between swimming and running. Don’t forget the trail riding for those with more gumption and agility.
