200th Anniversary of the Draisine Bicycle - Set for only GBP £1.38
History records various examples of vehicles that are powered by human strength so the discovery of bicycle cannot be tied to the name of a particular inventor. The German baron Karl von Drais is mentioned as the first bicycle driver who in 1817 made a bicycle called draisine. Crisis and the lack of food at the beginning of the 19th century prompted him to find a replacement for the horse that would be used for transportation so he invented Laufmaschine („running machine“) which was later called draisine.
