Bike Wheel - Perry Doolittle, a Luton native, built the area’s first bicycle with the help of a nearby blacksmith in the 1860s. He raced in the 1880s, won numerous trophies and, in 1896, invented a braking system that became widely used. An early auto enthusiast, he helped found the Canadian Automobile Association and advocated for good roads and a Trans-Canada road system.
