About

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, bicycles became a popular mode of transportation and recreation. They were initially seen as an expensive luxury item, but as production methods improved and prices decreased, they became more widely available.

One of the most significant developments during this time was the introduction of the safety bicycle, which had two wheels of the same size, a chain drive, and pneumatic tires. This design made cycling safer and more comfortable, allowing for longer rides and higher speeds.

Bicycles were used for transportation, particularly in urban areas where they offered a faster and more efficient alternative to walking or horse-drawn vehicles. They also became popular for leisure activities, with cycling clubs forming and races being organized. Women also began to ride bicycles, which was seen as a significant step in the fight for women's rights and independence.

Bicycles also had an impact on fashion, with clothing designed to accommodate cycling becoming more popular. This included looser-fitting clothing and specialized cycling shoes.

During World War I, bicycles were used by the military for transportation and courier duties, and their importance as a practical mode of transportation continued to grow throughout the early 1900s.
