Tourist Society Formed (1874)

It is stated that the last new society formed is one of tourists, who are going to scour England on tricycles, not bicycles; and ladies are also to be members. There is no indelicacy, say the promoters, in a lady using one. One gentleman and his wife “did” North Wales last summer, he taking the luggage and she the baby and their pace was from eight to ten miles an hour.
