CHAPTER ONE Modernity and the Bicycle. It was probably in the late summer of 1869 that coal miners on the day shift at the Caledonia mine in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, stumbled out into the bright light of day to see the strangest of scenes. A young man – Henry S. Poole, the mine manager’s son – was riding around in the mill yard on a curious, two-wheeled, pedalling machine.

The Bicycle in Canada, 1869-1900. An examination how the bicycle as a symbol of modernity and social status fits into the larger picture of change and progress in a period of dramatic economic, social, and technological flux.

This is the story of Canada's encounter with the bicycle in the late nineteenth century, set in the context of the cultural movement known as 'modernity.' Glen Norcliffe covers the bicycle's history from about 1869, when the first bicycle appeared in Canada, until about 1900, a date that marks the end of the era when bicycles were a recognized symbol of modernity and social status; cycling continued into the Edwardian period and beyond, of course, especially in Europe, but by then it had lost its symbolic status and social cachet in Canada.

Norcliffe's aim is to examine how the bicycle fits into the larger picture of change and progress in a period of dramatic economic, social, and technological flux. He argues that the bicycle led to a host of innovations affecting the development of technology, modern manufacturing, better roads, automobiles, and even airplanes. He describes, for example, how the bicycle, promoted through eye-catching advertisements, was one of the first products for which the sale of accessories was as important as sales of the main item - thus anticipating twentieth-century patterns of marketing.

Lively and well illustrated, The Ride to Modernity provides a particularly Canadian history of one of the first big-ticket, mass-produced consumer luxuries.
