two-wheeled thoughts: London Judy

two-wheeled thoughts

away on the road where the dusty clouds whirl
away with a spirit ecstatic
goes the cool-as-an-icicle, bicycle girl
bestriding the latest pneumatic;
she heeds not the scoffers who scorn,
though knickers her kickers adorn,
the cool-as-an-icicle, bicycle, tricycle maiden by no means forlorn.
–London Judy, Buffalo Illustrated Express, July 29, 1894, as quoted in Around the World on Two Wheels
