Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Daniel Albone (12 September 1860 - 30 October 1906) was an English inventor, manufacturer and cyclist. He invented the world's first successful light farm tractor, and the Ivel Safety bicycle. Born 12 September 1860 at Biggleswade, Bedfordshire to Edward and Edith Albone. The youngest of eight children, they lived at the Ongley Arms inn, between the Great North Road and the River Ivel. For his ninth birthday he received a Boneshaker bicycle, and so began his long association with cycling. By the age of 13, he had designed and built his own bicycle, complete with suspension, and was winning local races. On leaving school, he undertook an apprenticeship with a Biggleswade firm of millwrights and engineers, Thomas Course & Son of Hitchin Street.show more
