two-wheeled thoughts: about a queen

two-wheeled thoughts

…what right-thinking girl of seventeen would hesitate between a throne and a bicycle?

–article in the New York Tribune, as attributed in Pete Jordan’s book, In the City of Bikes.

I love this one, because the girl in question is expected to choose the bicycle, and not the throne. Great stuff.

The book where I found the above quotation has not yet been published and thus its contents, presumably including quoted sources, are subject to change.
