Are you a man, or a ... woman?

It just stuck me that most of the people I've corresponded with here today I've presumed were men, although certainly in most cases there's nothing obvious that would tell me that. So now I'm curious about the gender ratio here, and/or bike commuting in general. I'm not trolling for dates; no need to post a comment while voting. Just curious.

this has been addressed previously. There are lots of women commuters in Washington DC and vicinity.

Judging by your poll, your assumption was right.

I'm an old guy - 60 years old - and possibly the oldest (??) bike commuter around this part of Atlanta. I've seen a few lady bike commuters. Most bike commuters I encounter look like they're 20-something to 40-something.

I'd question the accuracy of any results of a poll like this. There are a lot of smart a$$es here.

I'm offended by the lack of options on this post. What if I am both male and female, or neither. This is a biased thread and I'm boycotting it!

Well, I thought about offering an option for "Other", but didn't want to overly encourage the smart-a$$es. If you are unsure, just vote your preference.
