This new area is really nice!

Well last week I posted about the girl giving encouragement.. Well today it happened again. I actually ended up finishing the ride with her and chatting while biking. I am sure we will cross paths again as she lives rather close. It is just awesome how friendly the ladies are... I can't wait to get my wife out on a ride so she can see also. I have only passed one guy and he waved... I think it's gonna be a good place!

I see lots of wimmins on the road during my morning rides. I'm surprised at how many are out there. But I pretty much just mind my own.

Two days ago. I'm riding and from out of nowhere this girl startles me. I had no idea there was someone on my wheel. So I clicked the pic!....The road was a gentle descent so I held 25 mph before hitting the big hill. Once we hit the hill, she tried to drop me!

I continued up the hill while she turned off onto another street. She shouted, "hope I didn't break your camera!".

Hehehe! I'm not sure if she remembers but I ran into her about a year ago. I knew she was going to try from our last encounter. Back then she displayed a competitive nature, so I was expecting her to try. Maybe next time sweetie!

Seems like nice friendly ladies who ride in the area would be a great incentive to get the wife riding more. I fail to see a down side to this situation.

You should work on the sales pitch a bit first though

Riding with the ladies

I don't think I would want to let my wife know if the ladies were freindly out there, I think she might get mad. Also Mr Beanz you must be a talented man for being able to photograph the ladies while still riding forward. ECB1
