Photographer's Note

This is more of a test shot than anything; my new little camera has barely seen the light of day since I got it! I noticed this bicycle hanging above a cycle repair shop in town and thought it would make a good test subject.

The first appearance of a pedal-powered , two-wheeled riding machine was in 1865, when pedals were applied directly to the front wheel. This machine was known as the velocipede ("fast foot"), but was popularly known as the bone shaker, since it was also made entirely of wood, then later with metal tires, and the combination of these with the cobblestone roads of the day made for an extremely uncomfortable ride. They also became a fad, and indoor riding academies, similar to roller rinks, could be found in large cities.
