The Lady Drives VIII

Continuing with the brochure produced by Royal Enfield in 1915 we turn to the eighth featured rider:

"Thousands of Miles without any difficulty" Mrs. Florence Edith Richardson, of Clapham, S. W., writes on March 19th, 1915:-

"With my sister, Miss Ogden Smith, I have ridden thousands of miles on my Royal Enfield Side-car Combination without any difficulty.

"I am sure many more ladies would take up the pastime of motor cycling if they only realised the ease and comfort with which they could travel with a companion all over the country, and without any trouble or expense. We have had many long runs, one of the longest being from Guildford to Penlee Point in Cornwall, about 220 miles, starting early in the morning and arriving the same evening, without stops except for refreshment.

"I shall be pleased to convince any prospective lady riders that the saddle is a more comfortable seat than the fence, and much more interesting."

Mrs. Richardson is an intrepid motorist who makes light of big journeys. To have driven thousands of miles without any difficulties is splendid testimony to the Royal Enfield Side-car Combination.
