Cycling Suit

I would happily wear this late Victorian cycling suit, (c.1896-1898) any day of the year.

Brown wool cycling suit, American, 1896-98. A past time originally dominated by men, bicycling became more acceptable for women after Queen Victoria bought bicycles for her daughters. By the 1890s, clothing to be worn while cycling was being produced. This particular ensemble features a bifurcated skirt that allowed the rider a more comfortable ride while also giving the modest appearance of a skirt at front. This suit also includes a pair of gaiters, which provided protection for the legs.
