Superior Person's Tuesday!

Velocipede n. A light vehicle propelled by the rider - strictly speaking, by the rider's feet. A genuinely useful word, since it covers not only bicycles but tricycles, dinkies, toy cars, scooters, and the author's VW.

A velociraptor on a velocipede.
Each Tuesday, we’ll offer up a Superior Word for the edification of our Superior Readers, via the volumes of the inimitable Peter Bowler. You can purchase all or any of the four Superior Person’s Books of Words from the Godine website. Velocipede appears in the First.
