Annie Oakley had a bicycle! Annie Oakley could ride her bike no-handed while shooting at targets

She designed her riding costume herself; hooking her skirt to her leggings so it wouldn’t ride up as she pedaled her bike with both hands on her rifle shooting targets. Her first wheel was a 35 pound woman’s “Premier” bicycle that she bought in Glasgow. The press began calling her the “Little Cycling Sure Shot.” She took to riding enthusiastically – riding errands in London, touring in the morning when she had the time, and planning tricks for her show that would incorporate her bike.

  1. Annie could probably hit the bullseye while having sex, sureshot doesn't begin to cover her skill.
