Happy Earth Day! Happy Bicycle Around the World day…


Did you know…

… that today, besides being Earth Day!,  is Bicycle Around the World Day? In 1884, Thomas Stevens started a bicycle trip around the world. The trip took him over two years and nine months to complete. And he did it by riding a large-wheeled Ordinary, also known as a penny-farthing, where the front wheel is much larger than the back wheel!
