Bicy­cle bicen­te­nary An inven­tion from Ger­many that moves the world:

Baden-Würt­tem­berg is the land of inven­tors and thin­kers. Not only was the bicy­cle inven­ted here in 1817, but the auto­mo­bile as well in 1886. Nearly 200 years since the inven­tion of the bicy­cle, and after deca­des of auto-cen­te­red trans­port poli­cies, the state of Baden-Würt­tem­berg is once again wor­king on inven­ting mobi­lity for the future.
