Happy Friday – safety bicycle saves the day

Amongst the bicycles most important, and perhaps most enduring legacies is its effect upon women’s issues; indeed the mark the bicycle left upon gender relations in the 1890s is difficult to underestimate.

Hooray to the bicycle I say. Below are some ladies celebrating and enjoying their bicycles….NSFW.
