The Origins of the "Bicycle" Name and Logo

Bicycle Playing Cards JokerThe United States Playing Card Company doesn't have a definitive answer but they do offer the following:

The Joker is an American invention dating from about 1865 and has made different appearances in the BicycleŽ line. The first type represented a man on a high-wheeled bike. The bicycle later acquired two wheels of normal size. Then followed a series of playing card kings on bikes. These cyclists wheel past a milestone marked "808." Contrary to some opinions, this number has no mystical meaning. It is merely a reference number distinguishing this brand from others (such as "606") by the same company.
