The Montreal Bicycle Show 2013 rolls up to Montreal this weekend, showcasing over 200 cycling exhibitors at the Place Bonaventure, Montreal (800 Rue De la Gauchetière Ouest #240).

Bicycles have come a long way since its first original model, “The Dandy Horse,” was introduced in Nineteenth Century Europe.

The Dandy Horse also was the first form of two wheel transportation, invented by German, Baron Karl von Drais. His first model was used as a source of inspiration which lead to the “modern bike” later introduced in Mannheim during the summer of 1817 and then in Paris in 1818.
