"A grotesquely dressed dandy strides rapidly (right to left) on a velocipede, see British Museum Satires No. 13399, down a sloping road, as does another in the background (left to right). A third (right) is thrown into the air from his falling machine. In the middle distance a fat parson trudges up hill carrying his machine across his shoulder. A milestone is inscribed 'xxi From London'. Across the sky is etched: 'You have heard of old Pegassus flying no doubt, But our Hobbies nou [sic] Beat him good lack, For when you are tired of Rideing about, You may carry your Horse on your Back'."--British Museum online catalogue.
