Women should not ride bicycles! Fake news from the 1800s

Bicycle face?! Back in the late 1800’s women found they could get around faster and further with the help of a bicycle. That was great news for our our determined suffragists who were travelling around the country collecting signatures for the petition to win women the right to vote. With the help of a bicycle they could ride around to more places and get more signatures. Those who opposed the freedom that a bicycle brought to women decided to spread a little #fakenews about the moral and physical decline women would suffer by riding bicycles. Riding to the devil indeed!
