Have you been looking for a new role model for mixing biker-chick toughness with button-boots style? If you have, comics genius Kate Beaton has you covered, and if you haven't, now you know why you should have been. This badass velocipedestrienne (no, seriously, velocipedestrienne) is based on a 19th-century cartoon about "The Awful Effects of Velocipeding," and apparently the awful effects of velocipeding are that it turns you into an AWESOME TRASH-TALKING BICYCLE SPEED DEMON. At least, according to Beaton, whose version of history I always subscribe to.
