Bicycle Balancing is tricky!
Especially for ladies in a whirl of changing fashion. The new bicyle and the new young man. Plus-fours with socks of every colour were great for the outdoors for walking and bike rides in the country. Buzzing around Paris is quicker than a hike on foot. This painting needs no explaination and has a charm of it’s own….. 1902! UPDATE!! Below – This looks like the same man giving lessons in 1896! He has a firm grip on the brake and they are riding along the coast having a great time. Image recently found in a old Paris book/Oct 2012
