"Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel." --Susan B. Anthony, 1896. Curated by Janet Wallace of This Confetti Life.
