‘don’t scream if you meet a cow’ și alte sfaturi pentru bicicliste

În 1895 în ziarul new york world se publică un articol cu DOs & DON’Ts pentru femei atunci când merg pe bicicletă, pentru că lumea începuse să se teamă că valul emancipării feminine vine pe doo roți.

  • Don’t faint on the road.
  • Don’t wear a man’s cap.
  • Don’t coast. It is dangerous.
  • Don’t boast of your long rides.
  • Don’t cultivate a “bicycle face.”
  • Don’t refuse assistance up a hill.
  • Don’t wear jewelry while on a tour.
  • Don’t race. Leave that to the scorchers.
  • Don’t imagine everybody is looking at you.
  • Don’t go to church in your bicycle costume.
  • Don’t chew gum. Exercise your jaws in private.
  • Don’t wear white kid gloves. Silk is the thing.
  • Don’t use bicycle slang. Leave that to the boys.
  • Don’t discuss bloomers with every man you know.
  • Don’t appear in public until you have learned to ride well.
  • Don’t ignore the laws of the road because you are a woman.
  • Don’t scream if you meet a cow. If she sees you first, she will run.
  • Don’t cultivate everything that is up to date because you ride a wheel.
