Wheels of Change takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of the history of women and bicycles. For example, the relationship between bikes and women's liberation is examined: the simple bike gave women mobility. It sounds prosaic now, but at the time it was revolutionary.
Wheels has vintage photographs, advertisements, cartoons, and songs that give the reader a strong sense of the era(s) and the bicycle's role therein.
As Susan B. Anthony noted, the bicycle "has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world."
In Wheels, Sue Macy has contributed to the literature of the bicycle.
