    I heard that at the time it was said bicycling was dangerous to other parts of the female body too.

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    quote = the article
    The women who did ride faced a huge list of rules. Among the New York World's 41 rules for female cyclists printed in 1895: "don't refuse assistance up a hill" and "don't emulate your brother's attitude if he rides parallel toward the ground."
    The first instance of the Velominati rules?
