'I aim to explore (the) post-modern blurring of distinctions in relation to bicycles and cycling. Firstly I'll illustrate the difficulty of defining what exactly is 'a bicycle', and where the line can be drawn between bicycles and other artefacts. By then problematising assumptions built into bicycle design about cyclists based on gender, style, activity, age, etc., this definition problem extends out into the social world: if 'bicycle' can't be defined unproblematically, then neither can 'racing cyclist', 'woman cyclist', or even, by extension, 'woman'.'
Exactly, Paul, I know just what you mean. I'll be the Raleigh tourer in the second row.Reuse content
