The History Of The Bicycle

I have posting a bit about bicycling and perhaps you might be interested in checking out this fascinating alternative history of the bicycle.
An early bicycle painted by Botticelli between 1492 and 1500 from his series of illustrations to Dante’s Divine comedy.
This is from a fascinating May 2009 issue of the Scientific Archevelogy. In the article  by Sandy Collins she reports about their sensational discovery of a remarkable preserved ancient bicycle during the excavations around the Lower Normandian Château-Gaillard.
