The Bicycle is Born

Like many of the world’s greatest inventions, the machine that gave rise to what we now know as the bicycle was born of necessity. A string of poor harvests in Europe from 1812 led a German civil servant to develop a human-powered form of transport to counter the reliance on horses, which were in short supply due to a scarcity of animal feed. Karl von Drais christened his 1817 invention the ‘Laufmaschine’ (running machine), after the swift walking movement required by the rider in order to propel it forwards.
