Human-powered vehicle patents from 1869 forward and more

This page can fill many a rainy hour – a survey of Unusual Human Powered Vehicles – Links and Patents, not to mention the occasional bovine-powered one. This section has links to the front-page drawings of patents for human-powered land vehicles, not pedaled. There are some wild-looking rides here, too, including a Foot Bicycle that’s actually more like a skate – a bicycle for your foot.

No plain scooters or footbikes, though; that concept is so simple as to almost need no patent, although this one is often quoted as the first scooter patent.
