The sport of cycling dates back to the 1800’s, when in 1817 the first actual bicycle was developed. The safety bike was created in 1890, and this model was considered as being much safer than those in the past, most of which had one wheel much larger than the other. The safety bike was invented using metal that was strong enough to make a fine chain and a sprocket that was small and light enough for a human being to power.

In 1896 cycling was introduced to the Olympic Games with six opening events and nineteen cyclists, all men, from five nations competing. The sport of cycling has been included in every Olympic Games.


The Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation (TTCF) is the local body responsible for cycling. Please follow this link for more information about the TTCF: http://www.ttcyclingfederation.com/
