Book sneaky peak...
Here's a sneaky peak from my forthcoming book, The Girls' Bicycle Handbook. It's from the Style chapter and is about the link between vintage fashion and cycling and why certain styles work well on the bike; from pedal pushers to 1920's tea dresses. As a big fan of vintage fashion I loved researching and writing this section and found it fascinating to find out what women have been cycling in over the past 100 years (before Lycra ever entered this world!).
Cycling has a very glamorous past and was also instrumental in liberating women from their restricted housebound Victorian roles (as well as their restrictive Victorian corsets). I hope you like it.
