But do you know his story? When it was invented, the bicycle did not really look like its current form. It was in 1818 that the draisienne or also called velocipede appeared in Germany; 20 years later in Scotland, the pedals arrive; then the Michaudine in France, with its front wheel 1 meter in diameter! Several different shapes will emerge with the aim of increasing speed while providing stability and comfort. It was not until 1900 to discover the Hirondelle: the birth of the modern bicycle which was also the first means of transport for police officers. Today, the bike continues to evolve with the materials used to make it ever more aesthetic, strong, light and fas.
