About this object

This group of men and women, in their Sunday best outfits, make ready to embark on an excursion. With the use of motor cars in its infancy the most common mode of transport was still the horse. But with leisure time pursuits becoming more popular and the advancement of bicycle design in the 1880s, the bicycle was gaining greater popularity and particularly with women.

Although women-only cycling clubs were beginning to be formed by the late 1890s this was also a time when such activities were seen by some sections of society as challenging and as such they would often find it necessary to ride in the company of men for fear of being abused.
