"Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood." Susan B. Anthony

The League of American Bicyclists debunks 10 myths about women and their view towards riding a bicycle. Despite these findings women are still vastly underrepresented as people who ride bikes.
