    Abstract

    This chapter brings together two aspects of what social researchers referred to as a 'national urge for leisure' in the late Victorian and Edwardian period:motorcycling and magazines. It argues that motorcycling magazines served as prisms for an exploration of the boundaries of acceptable femininity in the pre-World War I era.
