Bicycle transportation will be the future transportation

Bicycle is the transportation which uses your legs as energy to move the bike.In 1817 bicycle was invented by Baron Karl von Sauerbronn from Germany. He invented this walking machine that would help him to get around the gardens. This device uses your legs as the "motor". Pushing your legs against the ground and the propeller will move and chain will be moved. Your position as the rider is on the wooden frame supported by two in-line wheels. Handle bar as the steering for front wheel. The tires was made by the rubber. Bicycle has been many innovations, there are the statements of www.wikipedia.com:

Bicycle in Plymouth, England at the start of the 20th century

The dwarf ordinary addressed some of these faults by reducing the front wheel diameter and setting the seat further back. This necessitated the addition of gearing, effected in a variety of ways, to attain sufficient speed. Having to both pedal and steer via the front wheel remained a problem. J. K. Starley J. H. Lawson, and Shergold solved this problem by introducing the chain-drive (originated by Henry Lawson's unsuccessful "bicyclette", connecting the frame-mounted pedals to the rear wheel. These models were known as dwarf safeties, or safety bicycles, for their lower seat height and better weight distribution. Starley's 1885 Rover is usually described as the first recognizably modern bicycle. Soon, the seat tube was added, creating the double-triangle diamond frame of the modern bike.

Further innovations increased comfort and ushered in a second bicycle craze, the 1890s' Golden Age of Bicycles. In 1888, Scotsman John Boyd Dunlop introduced the first practical pneumatic tire, which soon became universal. Soon after, the rear freewheel was developed, enabling the rider to coast. This refinement led to the 1898 invention of coaster brakes. Derailleur gears and hand-operated cable-pull brakes were also developed during these years, but were only slowly adopted by casual riders. By the turn of the century, cycling clubs flourished on both sides of the Atlantic, and touring and racing became widely popular.

Bicycles and horse buggies were the two mainstays of private transportation just prior to the automobile, and the grading of smooth roads in the late 19th century was stimulated by the widespread advertising, production, and use of these devices.

Bicycle has many utility:

  1. As commuting, cycling
  2. Sport
  3. Police
  4. Physical fitness
  5. Touring
  6. Freestyle
  7. Racing
Now, bicycle get in the majority transportation. In some states, bicycle got the number one for the moda transportations. There are bike way as the way for cycling. According to me, bicycle will be getting place as the majority transportation. Since the bicycle is non-using gasoline that caused polution, bicycle will be the best transportation. The human powered transportation.

Let's take places for campaigns to use bicycle everyday!!!
