Before the car there was the bicycle, and it is within many people's ability, with only a small amount of training, to maintain 15 to 20 km/h on a bicycle on unpaved roads.
Cars actually were invented before bicycle. Centuries before, in fact. Even if you'll narrow-down and exclude all these steam-powered wagons cars still come before bicycle. Compare history of the bicycle with history of the automobile. It's possible to twist definition of bicycle and definition of car enough to somehow make sure bicycle come before cars but it'll be pretty unnatural definitions.
