Book Inspiration Tuesday

Away on the road where the dusty clouds whirl
Away with a spirit ecstatic
Goes the cool-as-an-icicle, bicycle girl
Bestriding the latest pneumatic;
She heeds not the scoffers who scorn,
Though knickers her kickers adorn,
The cool-as-an-icicle, bicycle, tricycle maiden by no means forlorn.
—London Judy, Buffalo Illustrated Express, July 29, 1894
*Excerpt from AROUND THE WORLD ON TWO WHEELS by Peter Zheutlin.

For all those lovelies out there -xo
