  1. Interesting story of early bicycling. There is a historical bicycling story from nearby my town, Smithville in Eastampton Township nj. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Star_Bicycle. In addition to the manufacturing of bicycles, they also incorporated bicycles as means of transportation of the factory workers through a bicycle railway http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smithville,_Burlington_County,_New_Jersey

    Personally, I think it must have taken some skill to ride those!
