The bicycle is one of humankind’s greatest inventions. From humble beginnings over 200 years ago it has defied the rules and is more popular than ever today. In this entertaining and informative talk Mike Bruton will trace the evolution of the bicycle, mention its role in the invention of the motorbike, motorcar and even the airplane, highlight its impact on the emancipation of women, and discuss the diverse uses of bicycles through the years. He will also explain why the bicycle has become the icon of the ‘green living’ movement and why it has never gone obsolete.
