Top 5 Cycling Tours Around the World

When life is completed Cycle
Each individual’s aspiration to own a car for himself undoubtedly has its roots in one’s childhood. And wait, it’s not just toy cars that help build this dream. It is the tricycle, given to the child by his parents on a special occasion, such as a birthday, that gives the child the first taste of getting behind the wheel and leading life where the heart literally wants it. The joy and contentment on a child’s face when sitting on the trike and gradually in the bicycle saddle is truly unmatched.

Having said that, a bicycle is the first vehicle we ride in our lives, of course, only after our father’s back, when he, with much love and affection, doesn’t even care about becoming a horse so we can ride on your back.

The history of bicycles is quite interesting. The primitive structure of a bicycle is as fun as it is surprising. It was in 1817 when a German baron “Karl Von Drais” invented a horseless carriage, which would help him move faster. This two-wheeled, pedal-less device was powered by pushing your feet against the ground and it was this machine that ultimately led to the creation of the modern bicycle.

Then came the high wheel bike. Probably in our times, we have glimpsed in circuses, when clowns used to perform incredible feats in them. This high-wheeled bicycle was a popular style in the 1870s. The term “Bicycle” was not introduced until the 1860s when it was coined in France to describe a new type of 2-wheel vehicle with a mechanical drive.
