7 Destinations for Celebrating the Bicycle’s 200th Birthday
In 1817, inventor Karl Drais created what he called a running machine. Nowadays, we call it by a different name: the bicycle. Of course, the design has improved (a lot), and, since then, it’s become not just a transportation system but also a tool for both athletic and leisure activities. Plus, there’s no doubt that biking around a city or through nature is a great way to see a destination. This year, celebrate the bicycle’s 200th birthday by riding one of these seven incredible biking trails around the world.
