EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the 19th century, offering a fascinating glimpse into the world of cycling during that era. The artwork, featured in the tenth volume of the renowned French popular science weekly La Science Illustree, showcases an intricate illustration depicting the muscles used in cycling. The image captures both the technological advancements and human anatomy involved in this mode of transportation. A vintage bicycle with its chain-driven wheels, pedals, handlebars, and seat stands at the center while a cyclist is shown pedaling away energetically. Every muscle group engaged in this physical activity is meticulously depicted, highlighting the complexity of human musculature. As we admire this historical piece of artistry by Louis Figuier from 1892, it becomes evident how far cycling has come as a sport and means of transport. This print not only serves as a visual representation but also offers valuable insight into early bicycle technology and its impact on human physiology. Whether you are an enthusiast for sports science or simply appreciate historical illustrations, this artwork transports you back to an era where bicycles were revolutionizing personal mobility. It reminds us that even though times change and technology advances rapidly, our fascination with understanding our own bodies remains timeless.
