‘Dress guard’ according to the Dikke van Dale (Dutch dictionary):
oilcloth or plastic lining partially surrounding the rear wheel of a
bicycle to prevent a jacket or skirt from coming into contact with the wheel.
There is no country in the world which pays so much attention to dress guards as The Netherlands does. In other countries there are fewer bicycles anyway, but the bikes there are usually don’t have dress guards. In hot countries this is only logical. Nobody wears a long coat which needs protection and women with their long skirts do not ride a bicycle. In this respect, the dress guard may be regarded as a unexpected symbol of women’s emancipation.
Long live the dress guard !
