Bicycles are two-wheeled machines with metal frames that are propelled and steered by the rider. In addition to wheels and a metal frame, bicycles also feature a seat and handlebars; bicycles are a basic means of transportation throughout much of the world. Scottish blacksmith Kirkpatrick Macmillan is often credited with building the first modern bicycle in 1839.
