JACK OF CLUBS

There is a further coincidental reference to the ‘gayness’ of this bicycle. In packs of cards, the Jack or Knave was historically a trickster or a royal manservant and, in French decks, considered to represent Lancelot. But the Jack was also sometimes depicted as an ambiguous or female figure. The example below is from the Visconti tarot deck.
