Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood. ~Susan B. Anthony~
On a brisk and blue Sunday afternoon, she was an emancipated, free woman.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. ~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle~
The virgin ride of the season, spirits high, she thought of nothing but the mount and the road before her.
Melancholy is incompatible with bicycling. ~James E. Starrs~
So true, she rejoices! So true!
