L.A.W. magazine, Volume 26

Please understand me I do not believe the bicycle will go out of use it has its place in the economy of transportation and pleasure giving. It does annihilate distance, and does obliterate time. It is convenient. It is the very acme of athletics and all that belongs to that kind of sport. The bike as a fad has passed away but it finds its advocates and its users. It is folly to deny this or to underrate their numbers. Their name is myriad but the riders of the bike are no longer the carriage buyers or the carriage users.
