A History Of Our Shop Colors

The bicycle was one of the most exciting inventions of the late 1800s. It brought women unprecedented mobility and freedom. Women used bicycles to explore the world and build community. They fought for, and eventually won, important freedoms like the right to wear practical clothing such as pants instead of skirts, the right to own property, and the right to vote. With our shop colours - the purple, white, and green of the Suffragettes - we celebrate a century of women riding bikes, voting, and wearing pants (legally).
