Austrian military cyclists, 19th-century artwork. It was not until the late 1880s and early 1890s that bicycles had improved to the point where they could be used by the military. During the 1890s, many countries formed bicycles units in their armed forces. Artwork from the 20th volume (second period of 1897) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
