Many of my readers will know about my interest in cycling and professional racing. I recently wrote an article on Australian legend Ernie Old for Cycling History. There are so many great article on this blog that it's a wonder that this article escaped my attention. I wanted to share Aaron Crisp's well researched article about the biased attitudes that prevailed against women cycling. In time, as Aaron explains, women would come to enjoy the freedom of cycling unmolested. Sensibly women's fashion also changed to suit riding a bicycle without being hindered. There is much more to this article, nonetheless I will leave it to my friend Aaron to explain. Enjoy.
