about

In 1894 Annie Kopchovsky took a sponsorship from Londonderry Water Company and sailed off down Beacon Street in Boston with one change of clothes and a pearl handled revolver to become the first woman to ride around the world on a bike. Her 14-month journey became a symbol for women's emerging athleticism and flexible fashion trends.

I love this story and I love the bicycle. As I move around this world I always feel free when I'm on a bike. It might be my most favorite invention. This song is inspired by Annie Londonderry, by frozen fingers on night rides through Phily, by LA traffic, by flower shops in Oakland, by Juliet Elliott and Kelli Samuelson, by candy and summers spent on handlebars. It is also a tribute to every bike I've ever owned.

Love to all the ladies, young and old, twirling round the town.
