A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Bicycling Collection - The exact beginning of the Bicycle can be argued, but it is likely that in the early 1860's Pierre and Ernest Michaux, a French father and son carriage making team, invented the early bicycle, or at least the pedal and cranks (1861) that were used on bicycles. Farther back, German Baron Karl Drais von Saurbronn exhibited the "Laufmaschine," the "Running Machine," in Paris on April 6, 1818. The device consisted of two wheels connected by a wooden frame, was steerable, and was powered like a scooter by pushing with the feet. A similar device was the "celerifere," a non-steerable item invented in 1790 by a Frenchman, Comte Mede de Sivrac. The first efficient bicycle was invented in 1871 by British engineer, James Starley, consisting of a small rear wheel and a large front wheel which rotated on a simple tubular frame with tires of rubber. This bicycle was called the "Penny Farthing," also called the "Ordinary" or "High" bicycle. It's interesting that the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were very well known for building bicycles before their everlasting fame came from their invention, the ... airplane. Bicycles!
