Lady Cycling : What to Wear and How to Ride Hardback
This pioneering Victorian guide for the woman cyclist, first published in 1897, instructs its readers on the selection of a bicycle, the rules of the road, appropriate cycling costume, the choice of food to take on journeys, and the organisation of bicycle gymkhanas - as well as tackling the controversial question of whether cycling is an appropriate activity for ladies.
Its humorous advice evokes the spirit of an age when cycling was a daring activity for the modern woman.
