Lady Racing Cyclist. Historical Serious Badass.
Her bike (drop bars, fat tires, cage-less pedals). Her kit (badass non-aero, sans gloves because that’s how she rolled). Her death stare…
“Lady racing cyclist, Lancaster Park, Christchurch,” circa 1896.

Steve Jobs on Bikes and Condors
"I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. Humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing about a third of the way down the list….That didn’t look so good, but then someone at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of lomotion for a man on a bicycle and a man on a bicycle blew the condor away. That’s what a computer is to me: the computer is the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds." —Steve Jobs, Interview for the documentary "Memory and Imagination," 1990
