June 12th Ride will Honor Lallament

Pierre Lallament lived in Ansonia when he got the patent for the first pedaled bicycle in 1886. Then he spent his life in relative obscurity, working for a factory and dying without fame, money or much credit.

Now one Ansonia resident wants to change that — and it starts with a 10-mile bike ride this summer.

As part of the annual International Arts and Ideas Festival in New Haven, a group will bike from the New Haven Green to Ansonia on June 12 to recreate Lallament’s first long ride.
