Did you know the first mechanically propelled two wheel bicycle was built in 1839 in Scotland. The bike was built by Kirkpatrick Macmillan a Scottish Blacksmith. Whilst the bicycle existed, it wasn’t until 1863 when the first commercially designed bike become available.   

There has since been several ‘bike booms’ in history whereby Europeans and Americans have mass purchased bikes, with the average person owning several bikes in their lifetime. In 2012 in Britain bike sales surged due to success in the Tour de France and the Olympics. Bradley Wiggens and Laura Trott are to thank for this.

Since the 1970s bicycles have also developed into different types for a range of different purposes. Today’s categories include:-

Mountain bikes – built for strength and all types of terrain.

Road bikes – built for efficiency and speed.

Hybrid bikes – built for efficiency but also varied terrain.

BMX Bikes – built for stunts.
