Learn how Victorian women changed cycling fashion with Bikes and Bloomers

We are excited to announce that Kat Jungnickel, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and author of Bikes and Bloomers: Victorian Women Inventors and their Extraordinary Cycle Wear will be joining us for the Cycle Revival Festival.

 

The bicycle in Victorian Britain is often celebrated as a vehicle of women’s liberation. But much less is known about another critical technology with which women forged new and mobile public lives – cycle wear. After three years of in-depth archival research and inventive practice, Kat Jungnickel brings to life in rich detail the lesser-known stories of six inventors and their unique contributions to cycling’s past, which continue to shape urban life for contemporary mobile women.

From Alice Bygrave, a dressmaker of Brixton who registered four patents for a skirt with a dual pulley system built into its seams to Mary and Sarah Pease, sisters from York, patented a skirt that could be quickly converted into a fashionable high-collar cape – these women and their unique contributions to cycling’s past continue to shape urban life for contemporary mobile women. Kat’s ‘telling about society’ takes many forms including performances, installations and sewing workshops and we are looking forward to see what she will bring to the festival!
