Would the bicycle help bring about a new kind of equality between men and women? Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her colleagues certainly hoped so. At any rate, the image of a female cyclist quickly became associated with efforts to win more rights for women. What conclusion does Macy draw in this synthesis of ideas? Women were granted the right to vote in four states as a direct result of the bicycle’s invention. Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women.

Parkhurst, wife of another New York minister, celebrated the advantages of bicycle riding in Washington's Evening Times. "Of course I do not believe that bicycling is immoral," she said. "A girl who rides a wheel is lifted out of herself and her surroundings. She is made to breathe purer air, see fresher and more beautiful scenes, and get an amount of exercise she would not otherwise get. All this is highly beneficial." —Wheels of Change, Sue Macy
