    Dear Miss U,
    The first bike was invented around about in 1790 by Comte Mede de Sivrac.
    In 1816, Baron Karl von Drais de Sauerbrun, of Germany, invented a model with a steering bar attached to the front wheel.

    Hi Miss U,

    I found out the bicycle was called the velocipede. The first bicycle craze was in the 1870’s in France.

    I learnt all of that when I was at Sovereign Hill!

    Hi Miss U I found that The earliest bicycle was a wooden scooter-like contraption called a celerifere,it was invented about 1790 by Comte Mede de Sivrac in France. In 1816, Baron Karl von Drais de Sauerbrun, of Germany, invented a model with a steering bar attached to the front wheel, which he called a Draisienne.

    Hi Miss U
    I found out that the bicycle was made in the early eighteen sixties. The first bicycle race was eighteen sixty six, Not long after it was invented.
    Sorry this was a bit late.

    Dear Miss U,
    I researched that the first bicycle was invented in 1790 by Comte Mede de Sivrac of France. It was a wooden bicycle called celerifere.
