First bicycle concept was realised by Leonardo da Vinci in the 15th century. The bicycle had no chain, any drive train nor a steering mechanism for turning left or right. Then guess how it was operated…?
The first documented cycling race was a 1,200 metre race held on May 31, 1868 at the Park of Saint-Cloud, Paris. It was won by expatriate Englishman James Moore who rode a bicycle with solid rubber tires… Operating continuously since 1887, the club has sponsored races and timed distance events since its inception.
