Sobre o livro
"Bicycling for Ladies" constitutes a comprehensive instruction manual originally designed specially for women. It includes advice for beginners, information on training, an exposition of mechanics, and chapters on etiquette, technique, possible dangers, appropriate attire, and much more. Although old, this volume contains much information that will be of utility to those learning to cycle, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: "Possibilities", "What the Bicycle Does", "On Wheels in General and Bicycles in Particular", "For Beginners", "How to Make Progress", "Helping and Teaching; What to Learn", "A Few Things to Remember", "The Art of Wheeling on a Bicycle", "Position and Power", "Difficulties to Overcome", "Dress", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the History of the Bicycle. "Bicycling for Ladies" was first published in 1896.
