Came across the blog Lists of Note earlier today. Love this list of riding tips for ladies from 1895.
A few tips are laugh out loud funny, while others still somewhat ring true today. Here are a few of my faves. PLEASE visit their blog to check out the rest for a good laugh (or if you need to brush up on your 'rules of the road').
Don't be a fright.
Don't ask, "What do you think of my bloomers?"
Don't scream if you meet a cow. If she sees you first, she will run.
Don't wear white kid gloves. Silk is the thing.
Don't try to have every article of your attire "match."
Don't cultivate a "bicycle face."
Don't attempt a "century."
Don't scratch a match on the seat of your bloomers.
Don't appear in public until you have learned to ride well.
Enjoy ... Hope you are having a great weekend!
