We thought you might like this? Did you know the first two wheeled rider propelled machine was invented by Baron Karl de Drais de Sauerbrun, in France in 1818. It was entirely made of wood. It’s also been calculated that cycling at least 20 miles a week cuts in half the risk of heart disease compared to non-cyclists who take no exercise, according to the British Heart Foundation. The British Medical Association also recommends that you cycle daily. Dust off that saddle and feel the wind in your hair WHOOHAAA!!!

Sophie from Santa Cruz, CA sent in this ‘COOL’ bike photo to TGMHQ. We just LOVE cycling, but did you know? The first two wheeled rider propelled machine was invented by Baron Karl de Drais de Sauerbrun, in France in 1818. It was entirely made of wood.
