Historical Context:
Bicycles have been around for an incredible amount of time. They have undergone the necessary changes but the main concepts remain the same. The bicycle has propelled itself into the future without losing its roots. While the automobile has evolved into a self-parking couch on wheels, the bicycle still runs on manpower. It still requires minimal maintenance, and continues to provide man with an affordable, earth-friendly mode of transportation. It is an incredible invention that has stood the test of time. The bicycle is here to stay.
