Take Back The Bike… Past Tense

To men, the bicycle in the beginning was merely a new toy, another machine added to the long list of devices they knew in their work and play. To women, it was a steed upon which they rode into a new world.” ~ Munsey’s Magazine, 1896

Thought I’d share how IMPORTANT i/WE feel ” women / trans / bikes ” is for us at Boston Square. Come out. Join. It’s important. YOU MATTER!
