“I’ll tell you what I think of bicycling.”

As we prepare to emancipate ourselves from the oppressive heat of another New York summer, we think back to another lady who was jonesing for a change…

“I’ll tell you what I think of bicycling.  I think it has done more to emancipate woman than any one thing in the world. I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of free, untrammelled womanhood.” -Susan B. Anthony, 1896
