Got Dropped BY A Woman! Must Be Performance Enhancers!

Getting dropped on a climb by the lady in blue

Dropped on another climb

Now she's pulling away!

Then she has the nerve to laugh at me!

And she seemed to innocent sitting at the rest stop with her trusted Bianchi "Orion".


Yes, this is our friend and Athena forum member "Condorita"! She's been riding her butt off. Last I checked, she's ahead of Gina on bikejournal too....DAMMIT!...It' nice to see someone get out there and ride rather than sitting home making excuses why they can't!

Dang Beanz, you arent the only one. Jens charge this morning was so hard that it eventually cracked me. If she hadn't had mercy on me and slowed, she'd have beaten me back to the car by a good 5 minutes.

Females are built for bike ridding

HI,
I am convinced that women are built for bike ridding, I ve been following enough of them to notice they have great legs, they have this shapely torso's that merge into a powerful glutes, and its so dang distracting I can't seem to focus on my cadance and breathing,
That my excuse and I am sticking with it.
Doug

I'm not in the picture so there really is no evidence that I got dropped. If anyone asks, I'll deny it or say I don't remember cause there is no real proof!

Honestly, if you have not been dropped by a gal, you have not been riding long enough.

Funny, that first picture looks EXACTLY like a section of the Hudson River Greenway in NYC heading south. Well, except for what is showing through the fence on the right...

Must be performance enhancing metabolites.

Or, you were low on glycogen at the time.

Yup!....She doesn't let me ride BEHIND her much. She's never sure if I'm breathing hard cause I'm tired or if I'm practicing for the heavy breather prank calls!


Rob P, I think it was too many Mocha Chillers the night before!

What path is that? It looks like Ballona Creek but the last picture doesn't look like it unless it is a rest stop on the beach path.

Now you can get the Tee shirt "Dropped by a girl". Similar to the ones from Camp Perry that say "Shoot like a girl - if you can".

yea, I sure love following along behind Jen....

although with the new wheels she can hear me freewheeling and wonders if I'm slacking off or dying back there.
