In 1998, a second stamp was added to the American Transportation Series. The ten-cent Green Bicycle was issued to replace the Automobile bulk-rate stamp. In keeping with the design of the series, only a detail of the bicycle, the handlebar area, is shown on the stamp. The new Postal Service term "PRESORTED STD" appears here for the first time on a U.S. postage stamp.
 
America’s First Bicycle Manufacturer
Albert Augustus Pope (1843-1909) established the first U.S. bicycle factory in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1877. Early models carried the trade name “Columbia.” The firm grew steadily and produced an average of 60,000 bicycles annually during the 1880s. Pope was a pioneer and advocate of the hobby who successfully lobbied Congress for bicycle safety legislation. In 1895, Pope purchased 75 competitors and merged them to form the American Bicycle Company. The Pope Manufacturing Company is known as Columbia Bicycle today.
