Why was the very first bicycle so important?

Actually, the first bicycles weren't that important in

themselves. They didn't work that well, and they were hideously

expensive - toys for rich men.

But the first bicycle was the seed that eventually grew into the

"safety bike", a design easily recognizable even today. And that

bike was the first affordable means of personal transportation,

allowing people to work, study or socialize outside walking

distance from their homes.
