1917

Lynn, Ethel (1881-).  The adventures of a woman hobo. New York: George H. Doran Company,

1917.  {8712303}

Caught first in the San Francisco earthquake and then the Panic of 1907 in Chicago, where her doctor diagnosed her with tuberculosis, she and her mechanical engineer husband bought a used tandem bicycle, determined to ride it back to San Francisco in the spring and summer of 1908.  The wheel broke down in western Nebraska and they hopped freights the rest of the way.  Interesting vignettes of bicycle travel, with people suffering from the depression offering food and shelter in return for stories of the journey.

1918

Hampson, Walter. Awheel in Wharfeland.  London: William Nicholson, 1918.

1920

The author recalls his joy of cycling in New York and New England in the late nineteenth century.

“The lowly bicycle is once more becoming stylish.”  Literary digest (66) July 24, 1920), 74-75.

Even though the automobile and the airplane eclipsed the bicycle, it is making a

comeback.  Even President Wilson bought one.
