1818 – The Pedestrian

1818 – The Pedestrian. (Hobby horse)


In London the Draisine is especially known by Denis Johnson, a carriage maker.
He asked a patent on December 22 1818 for his bicycle and made his “pedestrian hobby-horse” of iron, giving it a bit more appearance and his driving school in Long Acre 75 had an increase in visits.

For the rest there is little known of what we know now, but if you have something additional we would like to hear it .
