Cycling -Bosnia and Herzegovina -Republic of Srpska-2022

The bicycle is probably one of the most popular means of transportation in the world. In some countries, bicycles are used for the purpose of public transport, and they have also found their place within sports.

The first bicycles were not so shiny and light, they were more robust, and from the perspective of today’s riders, they are quite problematic to ride.

In 1817, Karl Freiherr von Drais first sat on “something” on two wheels. This device was very similar to today’s children’s pushchairs, it was only for adults, and it moved with its feet. It didn’t have pedals, brakes, cat’s eyes and her frame was wooden, but it was just that – Karl’s first bike, called “draisine”. Although Karl Drais studied architecture, he did not foresee the entire architecture on his vehicle, as well as the brakes, but he still completed the first run successfully.

For two centuries, the bicycle has been a cheap means of transportation that has great advantages when it comes to health, sustainable development and environmental protection.

Previously, it was rare to see older people on bicycles, business impossible, and many younger ones, copying the older ones, were hesitant.

Many artists have also made some of their great works of art, such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp and others, specializing in the uniqueness and beauty of bicycles.

The triumph of cycling today is complete.
