– This human-powered, pedal-driven vehicle is a cool and eco-friendly means of getting around. It was invented by the German Baron Karl von Drais in 1820 and it didn’t look too much like what we have today on our streets and in our homes. It was made of a wooden frame and had a rider that sat upon it. There were two in-line wheels, much like we have today, but there were no pedals.
– Today, there are more of these vehicles in the world than there are cars. You can use them to work out, ride to work and even ride on harsh mountain terrain. They’re used in the Tour de France and without them we would all be much plumper!
