Bent spine syndrome

Just came across this bit of nonsense. Don't know the date.

Hysteria. Not uncommon, back in the day.

“Clickbait” is a new term for a very old trick.

Article also mentions "Bicycle Face":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_face

The exertion and concentration required for cycling was also thought to coarsen the appearance, giving it a "wild and haunted look of the eyes" with strain lines. Even an appearance of exhilaration was considered suspicious because it suggested (edited for less shock value)
"the deliberate and disgusting act of self-pleasure".

Multiple references to ‘the wheel’ indicates the article predates the introduction of safety bikes before the turn of the century - 1900 not 2000.

An attempt to keep women at home. Scare them a bit with fake news.

People with spinal spines should be less likely to ride bicycles and carry heavy objects, and should only walk
