Bicycles on Pavement
Archeologists have discovered bas-relief and hieroglyphic evidence of two-wheeled vehicles existing in ancient Babylonian and Egyptian societies,
but no ancient relics have ever been found.
Many people believe that the bicycle was invented by Leonardo da Vinci according to a drawing in a notebook;
however, most experts believe that it was either done by his assistant or a fake that was drawn much later.
One thing that experts do not dispute is the creation of the draisine around 1817 by Baron Karl Drais de Sauerbrun of Germany.
This machine was constructed of two wheels connected to a simple wooden frame with a steering mechanism and was patented as a walking machine,
enabling riders to travel up to ten miles
