    I was at the LBS the other day getting my gf fitted for a road bike when we noticed a young woman maybe in her late 20's stroll in. Immediately we were drawn to her humongous thighs. I guess it's to be expected when you bike but I was wondering how long it takes to get like that? And how often do you think she rides? Imo it looked pretty bad. Especially since she was short w/ short legs.

    I might get flamed for this however, i'd be sad if my gf who I think has pretty nice legs, gradually started to develop horse thighs, all because I got her into cycling as a hobby.

    That chick probably got her thighs from weight lifting, not cycling.
    America currently use 20 million barrels of oil a day, at $70 a barrel that is $1.4 billion a day. $1.4 billion that can fuel our economy.

    I personally don't think any part of the body should be exaggerated on a woman. If her thighs were disproportionate, I would think it would look odd. But then again, she could probably crush me with 'em.

    My legs are healthy & very strong looking, but no way very big for my height. I don't believe that could happen just from riding a bike. It could be a combination of things, including weight lifting.

    Just tell you girl, stay away from hills if you PREFER skinny thighs.

    Sounds like there was some magnetism involved here, perhaps the animal sort. Were other things also drawn to her thighs? Were there a couple of bikes sticking to them? And how did she manage to walk through the door without scraping her thighs on the jambs?

    Yikes! better drop her now! Or convince her to give up cycling. If a girls' thighs don't fit the perfect curve template, or there's a risk they won't in the future, she's really not worth your time.

    Perhaps she trains and races at the track.
    But honestly, being a total leg man, including kinky leg fetish, muscular thighs on women turn me off. Toned calves are fine.

    While the leg pictured may be a tad overdone, I can and do appreciate well toned legs on females.

    These look more like drumsticks to me. Don't let me pull out the Mr. Chicken Wing picture!

    Me thinks bigbuzz has a brewing issue here, using terms like "meaty" and "horse thighs".

    Muscle strengh and girth (I love that word!) is a sign of health and fitness. And healty bodies (male or female) are sexy.

    Just imagine the horizontal possibilties of two well-proportioned and muscular legs....

    Meaty in a proportional and athletic sense? Damn right! Freakishly huge in an East German powerlifting sense? No. Gawd NO!

    Was this the girl at the bike shop whose thighs drew you near?

    Shorter women who are athletic tend to have larger looking leg muscles, not sure why, just something I've noticed playing sports my whole life.

    I was a runner until I got the bike in May. My legs are TOTALLY different, my quads are growing daily, and I can "pop" them out bodybuilder style when I flex, but unless I flex it's not obvious. My calfs aren't more defined, but they've changed shape. Another few months, a little less bodyfat and I can see them looking even more defined. Frankly, I couldn't care less how they look if they can push the bike faster/farther. Where are the guys who find athletic ability hot? Would you rather a woman parade around fat thighs than strong ones?

    Are we talking about a Robert Palmer dancer, or an olympic weight lifter named Olaf?

    Yeah in terms of proportions and mass it looked similar to the picture Jur posted. I couldn't tell the definition cause she wasn't flexing but she was wearing spandex so you could see the shape. Her calves were not that big either. She just had monster thighs... and yes our eyes were initially drawn to her cause she was wearing a full cycling outfit, and thats when we noticed her freakishly huge thighs.
