Bicycle Photo Caption Contest - International Woman’s Day Edition
We normally do our caption contest on Fridays, but today is the 8th March - International Woman’s Day.
The bicycle is indeed a true freedom machine. It enables us to go places that are just too far to walk, without the need to be in a silly metal box for transportation. If you were a woman in the late 19th century, this was particularly true - to ride a bike, you needed sensible clothes instead of insane corsets and ankle-length skirts, and once on a bike, you could go where you wanted . . . without a male chaperone (*Gasp* where will it all end?!). As Susan Anthony said,
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…the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.
And the same is very much true today - you can see it over at Amsterdamize , or various Cycle Chic web sites around the world. And its to celebrate this that we have today’s caption contest photograph:
So, see what you can come up with as a caption for this photo, and leave your entry as a comment below. Who knows - with the right entry, you could just win this week’s [virtual] prize - the chance to see Fat Rob wearing a corset and ankle-length skirt (n.b. you’ll have to pay for your own psychotherapy after).
