FAKE NEWS! This myth likely originated from a sketch found in 1974, believed to be a da Vinci creation, which depicted a chain-driven bicycle.
FALSE! The Penny-Farthing is a specific bicycle model with a large front wheel and a small rear wheel. It was not the first type of bicycle.
NOPE! While the most common image of a bicycle is a two-wheeled vehicle, there have been numerous variations throughout history, including tricycles and quadricycles.
NOT TRUE. The "Bone-Shaker," introduced in the 1860s, is often mistakenly thought of as the first bicycle.
WRONG AGAIN. Cycling does involve some risk, but statistics show that it's even safer than gardening. Seriously.
