Women ‘arrested for riding bicycles’ in Iran and made to sign pledge never to cycle in public again

They were planning to participate in a cycling event in the north-western city of Marivan when police told them a new government directive had barred women riding bicycles in public.

    We are so weak without their vibrancy.

    Turdeau will put that law in his party platform.

    Lord, can anyone imagine such brazen, uppity women?

    • glasnost

      Repeat offenders apparently.

      • Alain

        No remorse or sense of shame either.

          stone them

    The prophet says only Muslim men can ride bicycles, providing there are no seats attached.

  • Women can’t ride bicycles in public in Iran, but at least they can ride them in private. The kitchen, the living room, the bathroom — lots of options.

      I was thinking around the goat pen when the hubby was away…

    The reason is of course that their quims are rubbing on the seat perhaps titillating their
    vestigial clitoris and this could lead to women getting ideas if you know what I mean….nudge nudge….wink wink…

    Ideas like running off with their velocipede (his name is Raleigh)and claiming refugee status in Canada.

      If a centipede a pint,
      And a velocipede a quart,
      How much would a precipice?

      Possibly a canopy.

    Has anyone ever seen a hijabi riding a bike? You never do, do you.
