Slovic Velo Lexicology: In May and June of 1895, nineteenth century champion velocipedist Robert Jefferson successfully rode from London to Moscow and back in under 50 days. (This was after he had cycled from London to Constantinople (Istanbul) and back in 1894.) His vehicle, an Imperial Rover. According to our Slavic language connection, in parts of Poland, even now, the word for bicycle is "rover." The use of "rover" may have originated with Jefferson's ride.

The Bringa Work Group ('Bringa' is the Hungarian word for bicycle) reports that the Hungarian government has voted to dedicate 5% of the road construction budget to build national and international bike paths. Unfortunately, the money can't be used inside Budapest, which currently has only 23 kms (14 miles) of bike paths and many narrow cobblestone streets. Road building is focused on cross town thoroughfares for motorists. Bringa is continuing to work with local government officials to create a bicycling infrastructure.
