Description:
The "velocipede" in this patent is considered by some to be the genesis of the modern bicycle. The patent covers the pedals and cranks, which here are directly connected to the front wheel, making for a rather slow ride. But until this invention, velocipedes were propelled by pushing with the feet along the ground.
