Two hundred years of the bicycle

The first trip on two wheeled vehicle was made almost 200 years ago on 12 June 2017 by Karl Drais from the centre of Mannheim out to a pub on the road to Schwetzingen and back. The city is going to celebrate this over the next eight months. The first stage starts tomorrow with an exhibition on the history of the bicycle in the Technoseum, the provincial museum of science and technology. It runs until June next year.
