History of Cycling and Women's Liberation!

Zoe and I heard this piece on NPR as we drove to Natchez way back when.  I appreciated Robert Penn’s historical outlining of cycling [in America] and it influence on women’s liberation.  Ride on!

Last night I read this passage from the prologue in John steinbeck’s book, “Travels with Charley.”

Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing and coercion are fruitless. We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.
