Course Title

Title for the course



A bicycle, or bike, is a small, human powered land vehicle with a seat, two wheels, two pedals, and a metal chain connected to cogs on the pedals and rear wheel. A frame gives the bike strength, and all of the parts other than the frame are attached to the frame. The name comes from these two wheels - the prefix "bi-" meaning two, and the suffix "-cycle" meaning wheel. It is powered by a person riding on top, who pushes the pedals around with his or her feet.

Bicycle Archaeology

The evolution of a bicycle has had an enormous impact on society in terms of life, culture, environments, and advancing modern technologies. For an example, several components in automobile industries were originally invented for the bicycle – e.g., ball bearings, pneumatic tires, chain-driven sprockets, spoke-tensioned wheels, etc. To investigate the impact on society, we discuss the invention and evolution of the bicycle related to Global, Economic, Environmental, and Societal issues.
