    OK I know that sounds all lofty…but it’s true. It will probably take another hundred years for the total integration of women into the manstream, assuming humanity er…well…don’t go there…
    A hundred years ago the bike industry (nascent technology at its most florid) figured out how to get women on bicycles over STRONG VICTORIAN TABOOS.
    Now there are different hurdles: the industry and the patriarchy it lies within.
