Bicycle = Freedom

I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by . . .

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, 1820-1906, abolitionist and leader of the American women's sufferage movement.
