    View of Charles W. Oldreive's new tricycle, or the New Iron Horse, with a gentleman inside, ca. 1882.

    I cannot find any evidence that this ingenious contraption, or its inventor, received any lasting attention other than this photo.

      It's also nice this one. The other one is better for summer and this could be perfect for autumn or even winter.
