    Some facts about bicycles

    There are about a billion bicycles in the world, the greatest share being that of China with its 400 million bikes.

    The first basic bicycles, which were without pedals, were built by Frenchman De Sirvac in 1690. The pedals were later added by a Scottish blacksmith, Kirkpatrick Macmillan.

    The first five-seat bicycle, called quindem, was first built in 1940.

    The world speed record on a bicycle is held by John Howard, Olympic Cyclist and Ironman triathlon winner from the US. In 1985 he reached 245.08 km/h (152.2 mph), cycling in the slipstream of a specially designed car.

    A cycle can weigh as light as 3.2 kg and as costly as over 20,000 bucks.

    Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP), which began in 1891, is the oldest bicycling event still run on a regular basis on the open road, covers over 1200 km and imposes a 90-hour time limit.

    Japan employed 50,000 bicycle-troops in WW II while Britain used airborne 'Cycle-commandoes' with folding bikes.

    It has been estimated that, on average, approximately 20 life-years are gained from the health benefits of road bicycling for every life-year lost through injury.
