To understand its place in our society we must look at it for all of these perspectives. This historical assessment traces technological history of the cycle from the early 19th to the late 20th century focusing on the major innovations that made two and multi-wheeled cycles a viable and popular form of recreation. It also outlines the development of the cycle industry and Canada's place in it. Finally, it explores the place of the cycle and cycling in Canadian society.
