the bicycle turns 200!

The bicycle celebrates it’s 200th anniversary this year – and we can explore the bike’s evolution, thanks to CNET!

As a recreational cyclist, I will certainly celebrate this; here’s my ride, which I’ve had for 19 years now:

Unfortunately, it’s in desperate need of a tuneup, and its 26-inch wheel diameter is a bit small for me (as a point of comparison, Citibikes have 28-inch diameter wheels; a hybrid bike with 28-30 inch diameter wheels would work wonders for me). Nevertheless, I take joy ’cause I’ve gone high and low with my bike; I’m sure many cyclists can say the same!

How are you celebrating the bicycle’s 200th?
