In my opinion that would be the bicycle and the cell phone. I’ll start by first explaining why I believe that the bicycle is a great and helpful invention. Let’s say you need to travel somewhere at a relatively quick pace, but walking is too slow for you. What can you do? What if you can’t operate a vehicle? You can ride a bicycle!
