About this product
- DescriptionThe invention of the bicycle changed history by democratizing travel for the first time. The common man - and importantly the common woman - could w afford to travel at reasonable speed without need of a horse. Instead of walking just ten miles a day on foot, a healthy individual could w ride up to eighty miles on a cycle at a relatively modest cost. Today, despite the prevalence of the car, the bicycle is as important as ever. More cycles appear on city streets each year, offering healthy, pollution-free transport. Commuters cycle to work through congested traffic, urban hire-bike schemes are increasingly common, and the sports of road and track racing continue to gain in popularity.
