The Running Machine on Wheels
“You throw your leg over kind of like you are jumping on a horse with your feet, your toes just barely touching the ground, and you are able to achieve seven to eight miles per hour." It was the earliest version of the bicycle. Carey Williams, the national commander of the Wheelman Association explains how to use the Draisine, named after German inventor Karl Von Drais. He first took it for a spin on June 12, 1817.
