Postcard Thursday: The 200th Anniversary of the Bicycle


Earlier this week, James wrote a travel story for The New York Post based on our recent research in Germany. This year marks the 200th birthday of the bicycle, invented in Mannheim, Germany, by Karl Drais.

You can read the story at http://nypost.com/2017/05/02/where-to-celebrate-the-bicycles-200th-birthday/, which also gives suggestions for biking in France, the UK, Ireland, and Canada.

Enjoy!
