<<+--------------------------------------------------------+ | While out riding my bike I wondered who was the first | | to dream it was possible to eliminate half the wheels | | of a cart and balance on the resulting contraption? | | --Chuck Schmidt | +--------------------------------------------------------+>> Alex Moulton once stated that he found it very odd that progressing from chariots to wagons in the development of the wheel that such an unlikely contraption as a bicycle was ever conceived at all.

Then again perhaps the earliest hobby horse being propelled along the ground was just a wheeled horse in the inventors mind. Videos certainly seem to indicate a similar style to house travel.
