History of the Bicycle
Historic Voices is proud to present this Illustrated Lecture on The History of the Bicycle, with an emphasis on Illinois. For example, Peoria was a leader in dispelling false ideas and showing the world the great utility and recreational potential the bicycle had. But you can’t talk about the history of the bicycle without mentioning those geniuses from Ohio - Orville and Wilbur Wright. The history of the bicycle will take you all around the nation and around the world.
