Cu siguranta ati auzit cel putin o data de Coana Mita Biciclista, sau de rimele deocheate la adresa ei. Aceasta doamna nu este o fantezie a bucurestenilor si nici o legenda, ci ea chiar a existat. Maria Mihaescu, pe numele ei adevarat, s-a nascut in 1885, la Ditesti, judetul Prahova. Renumele de "biciclista" si l-a castigat in anul 1898, cand ziaristul George Ranetti, redactor-sef la revista "Furnica", amorezat de ea, a observat-o intr-una din plimbarile ei cu bicicleta pe Calea Victoriei. Evident, Mita l-a refuzat, iar acest lucru l-a enervat de Ranetti, care a poreclit-o "Mita Biciclista".

Maria era o femeie frumoasa, nu prea inalta (cam 1.60 m), cu parul blond tuns scurt si cu ochii verzi - albastri. Ea a fost curtata de multi barbati celebri: Nicolae Grigorescu (trecut de 50 de ani), Octavian Goga sau regele Ferdinand. El i-a daruit casa de langa Piata Amzei, casa cu doua corpuri, ce-i poarta numele. Chiar regele Manuel al Portugaliei a cerut-o de nevasta, dar ea a refuzat. A ramas fidela amorului pentru doctorul Nicolae Minovici, parintele societatii „Salvarea“.

Imagine postată

Mita a fost prima femeie care s-a plimbat cu bicicleta, pe Calea Victoriei, imbracata in pantaloni. Avea ghidon de argint si o casheta de matase, infasurata in voal alb, din care rasareau incrucisate doua ace mari, a la madame Butterfly.

De altfel, viata de lux nu-i era straina Mitei, deoarece ea detinea: o trasura, o masina coupe, slugi, nu putea sa manance decat la Athenee Palace si sa-si vopseasca parul la cel mai chic coafor de pe Calea Victoriei.

Nici in momentele cand o ducea prost cu banii nu se lasa mai prejos : ea isi trimitea barbatul, pe generalul Dumitrescu, la cersit, la un magazin alimentar de pe strada Mendeleev, imbracat saracacios, ca apoi sa cineze la Athenee Palace.

De asemenea, Coana Mita a fost prima femeie care s-a balacit in mare, imbracata intr-un costum de baie considerat sumar, pentru ca toata lumea, la acea vreme, facea baie in halat. Acest fapt a determinat o interventie a unui sef de post care a inceput sa fluiere precipitat ca ea sa iasa din apa. Mita s-a dus imperturbabila la politist, l-a lovit cu umbrela de plaja si l-a intrebat curioasa "de ce suiera".

Asadar, Maria Mihaescu a fost o excentritate la vremea respectiva, ce va ramane mereu in istorie, ca prima femeie care s-a plimbat pe bicicleta.

Bike Helmets & Lycra

This is extremely important; do NOT wear a helmet. Three types of people wear a helmet on a bike in Holland;

  • The English.
  • North Americans.
  • The mentally afflicted.
The English and Americans wear helmets because in their worlds common sense no longer rules and people must be safe from their own actions at all times. Also it is a well known fact that when Americans fall off a bike they fall on their heads, why this should be we do not know. God gave us each an ass, in fact he appears to have given many Americans more than one ass each and yet they do not use them, you have to wonder why. On the rare occasion a Dutchman comes off their bike we fall on our well padded behinds (and it’s ALWAYS the fault of a German motorist).

The only time you need to wear lycra when riding a bicycle is when you are a speed rider at a velodrome or riding in the Tour de France, there is not any other occasion when lycra and bicycles should be mixed together.

Când vine vorba de americani... parcă au dreptate fetele astea :D

Ce inseamna sa scrii un articol despre ceea ce nu stii...

Au pus poza de la Elite HPT la "Full suspension" si cea de la Stereo, la "Hardtail"...

Pacat, se puteau orienta macar, dupa poze B-(
