Nobody knows the name of the person who made the first bicycle but some historians believe that ancient Egypt is the place where it all started. Drawings in some old Egyptian tombs certainly seem to show objects that look like bicycles. We know that the Egyptians used to make lightweight wheels with spokes and that they were very skilful builders. So, perhaps, one day, a clever carpenter simply connected two of these wheels to a wooden frame and the bicycle was born.

1490 was the year when the 'bicycle' made its next appearance. A simple picture which dates from that year shows an object with three wheels that looks a lot like a tricycle. Three years later, Leonardo da Vinci, the man whose picture this was, drew one which had two wheels and appeared to be moved by a pedal attached to a chain. Unfortunately, Leonardo never developed his machines further than his drawings.
