There is no doubt, that the invention of the two-wheeled velocipede was the start of effective sustainable development in individual transport. In the early days, the social and economic benefits were the most important. Nowadays the ecological benefits of human powered vehicles is increasingly important – worldwide.
Many prejudices against cyclists today have their parallel, if not even their roots, in the past. We are confident, the rehabilitation of Karl Drais and an appreciation of his invention is not only required to be aware of history, but also would also support sustainable development of urban traffic.
