There are a lot of interesting facts in the history of bicycles and related sports. Bicycles had different forms in different epochs before coming to the modern version. The bicycle was invented in 1817. At those times, a noble German Karl Freiherr von Drais created a vehicle nicknamed the dandy horse.
23 years later, in 1840, a Scottish blacksmith Kirkpatrick Macmillan invented a more advanced pedal driven version of the bicycle. In 1865, the first bicycle was introduced in France. Its two wheels were the same size and the seat was slightly ahead of the rear wheel.
