Somerset Road Club Disciplines The invention of the bicycle has had an enormous impact on society, both in terms of culture and of advancing modern industrial production. The basic shape and configuration of a typical bicycle has changed little since the first chain-driven model was developed around 1885. Many details have been improved, especially since the advent of modern materials and computer-aided design. These have allowed for a proliferation of specialized designs for particular types of cycling.
