MacMillan Velocipede
MacMillan Velocipede
The MacMillan velocipede was invented 1839 and was the first of its kind to be ridden with the legs off the ground. This two-wheeled vehicle was designed by Kirkpatrick MacMillan, a Scottish blacksmith. It was the first of its kind that allowed people to ride without touching their feet to the ground. In MacMillan's hometown of Coathill, Scotland, the one hundredth anniversary since the creation of the MacMillan velocipede was celebrated in September 1946 after an eight-year delay caused by WWII, but recently the actual existence of this vehicle has come under suspicion.
