So apparently, Saudi women are now allowed to to ride bikes--sort of.

That being said, The Atlantic reports that women can only ride bicycles or motorbikes "for fun"--but not for transportation.

This means that, should they have the required male male accompanying them, women can ride bikes in recreational areas and parks legally. Though they still have to wear an abaya, which I feel kind of kills the magic. Nobody wants to go bike riding in a floor-length gown, now do they?

Regardless, I guess this is a step in the right direction... kind of.

I feel like this is a belated April Fool's Day prank. I mean what next? Women voting!? Istaghfirallah!
