"Bicycling has done more to emancipate women than any one thing in the world. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood."
— Susan B. Anthony

"Just as the ideal of classic Greek culture was the most perfect harmony of mind and body, so a human and a bicycle are the perfect synthesis of body and machine."
— Richard Ballantine

"When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking."
— Arthur Conan Doyle, 1896

"I thought of that while riding my bicycle."
— Albert Einstein

"Next to a leisurely walk I enjoy a spin on my tandem bicycle. It is splendid to feel the wind blowing in my face and the springy motion of my iron steed. The rapid rush through the air gives me a delicious sense of strength and buoyancy, and the exercise makes my pulse dance and my heart sing."
— Helen Keller

"The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community."
— Ann Strong — 1895

"Cycling satisfies so many needs. If you're in a gregarious mood, you can go out with a group. Or you can go alone- solo. If you're in an aggressive mood, you can go fast, or if you're tired and want to unwind you can go slow. A bicycle doesn't discriminate in age, either."
— Georgena Terry

"Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live."
— Mark Twain

"The bicycle supplies ... a new pleasure — the pleasure of going where one wills, because one wills... Riding the wheel, our own powers are revealed to us... You have conquered a new world, and exultingly you take possession of it."
— Marie E. Ward, 1896

"Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race."
— H.G. Wells

"She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life."
— Frances E. Willard,
