This issue commemorates the 200th anniversary of Karl Drais' dandy horse bicyle.

In 1817 German inventor Karl Drais invented the Laufmaschine ("running machine"), later called the velocipede, or nick-named the dandy horse. This incorporated the two-wheeler principle that is basic to the bicycle and motorcycle and represented the beginning of mechanized personal transportation. Drais took his first recorded ride on the Laufmachine from Mannheim to Rheinau, now a suburb of Mannheim, on June 12, 1817.
