/ins . Baden-Württemberg, June 2017. For 200 years, the bicycle has provided us with envi-ronmentally friendly mobility. The history of this revolutionary invention from Germa-ny begins on 12 June 1817 in the city of Mannheim. Today, the bicycle is one of the predominate forms of transportation the world over. For the 200th year anniversary of the “first bicycle ride”, Germany is looking back to the origins of individual mobility and to the place where it all began: Mannheim, today the third-largest city in the state of Baden-Württemberg –. Baden-Württemberg, in particular, is celebrating the bicy-cle’s bicentenary in 2017 by hosting many special activities and events.
