"The humble bicycle has won a UK national survey of people's favourite inventions".
"Listeners to BBC Radio 4's You and Yours programme were invited to vote in an online poll looking at the most significant innovations since 1800.
It was an easy victory for the bicycle which won more than half of the vote.
The transistor came second with 8% of the vote, and the electro-magnetic induction ring - the means to harness electricity - came third."
Those folks in the UK must ride a lot of bikes!
