I'm glad the thread hasn't moved much in a while. When I'm browsing around I tend to go to the last page and this has hung around for a while, which pleases me. I find the picture very cute.

Bit of a long shot but I reckon she's sporting seat posts. Probably 26.8's and a couple of 27's ...

Hi Andrew,

Do you have any contact details on Bianca? I think I have met her this summer in Europe, Croatia in Hvar.

Thx.

Whilst I do agree with the principles behind the Skirtbike idea, and give all credit to Andreea for her efforts, it was actually the repressive nature of womens' dress and their desire for emancipation that led to the rational dress movement, and later electoral emancipation movements.

http://museumvictoria.com.au/about/mv-n ... of-things/

Fiona’s presentation revealed that the implications for women were particularly significant and reflected their changing status in society. This change was an unwelcome one to many; female cyclists were disparaged in the press, often heckled and sometimes even assaulted for "outstepping the limits of womanliness" (Australian Home Journal, 1895).

Some women kept a low profile by riding slowly and gracefully in long skirts on specially-designed drop-frame bicycles. Others, however, were trailblazers – historic photographs record them taking part in races, long tours, and embracing a new physical strength and independence. These women wore "rational dress," a practical but scandalous costume of bloomers and coat, and preferred men’s bicycles for their reliability and speed
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.

I imagine Strava's monthly challenges would look very different if men had an entourage like this following them... although arguably you'd only ride 100km a day if you allowed 4 hours for sleep, because they wouldn't go much faster than 5kmh - and neither would you... :lol:
