two-wheeled thoughts: Fairfax Downey

two-wheeled thoughts
I got an amazing wealth of bicycle-and-women-related quotations from Around the World on Two Wheels: Annie Londonderry’s Extraordinary Ride, by Peter Zheutlin. I shall be sharing you with them here periodically. Two-Wheeled Thoughts will not always be feminine but will always be bicycle-related, of course.

On that simple machine she rode like a winged victory, women’s rights perched on the handlebars, and cramping modes and manners strew on her track.
–Fairfax Downey, as quoted in Around the World on Two Wheels
