On June 26 in 1819, the bicycle was patented.
What a great excuse to study the different shapes of bicycles over the years (your kids will laugh at some of the designs), spruce up the bicycles you have (how many have flats?) and learn about bicycle maintenance.
Once the bikes are in tip top shape, maybe you can purchase just the right horn, basket or streamer to accessorize. Or better yet, have your kids decorate their bikes and have a family parade.
The bicycle is an amazing invention.
Without it we wouldn’t have the expression, “It’s like riding a bike…”
Remember, fun learning if forever learning!
