"Better in Health than I have ever been" Mrs. Mary Riley, of Birmingham, writes on March 20th, 1915:-
"Until I took up motor cycling I was one of the most nervous persons, and suffered two serious breakdowns. My doctor advised me to undergo an operation, but happily I altered my mind later, and decided to have a Motor Cycle and Side-car so that I could get into the fresh air in comfort. I soon found great benefit from the outdoor life, and to-day I am better in health than I have ever been. This is entirely due, I feel sure, to motor cycling.
"I learnt to drive on a 3.5-h.p.......with Side-car, but quickly decided to buy a 6-h.p. Royal Enfield. I became so accustomed to this outfit, and its reliability, that I decided to try competition work, and have done remarkably well. My Royal Enfield has never failed on one hill, and I have now covered over 15,000 miles on it."
Mrs. Riley is probably one of the most experienced lady motor cyclists of to-day. She has competed in many of the leading motor cycle trials, and always with marked success.
