For those living in South Florida the first anual bike day is being held in Coral Gables October 23...
It was the summer of 1817 when Karl Drais invented a walking machine with two same-size in-line wheels mounted on a wooden frame. The device was propelled by pushing the feet against the ground, thus rolling a person and the deviceforward in a sort of gliding walk. This invention evolved into what we know today as the popular bicycles. Currently, there are more than a billion bicycles worldwide, with about 70 million in the United States.
