Serzly...
I like the eye candy of fem joggers, but they are killing their knees and
ankle joints...and make me run into trees and things.

I am old now...I come from a time when they still had ashtrays on
bicycles...I am trying to figure things out before I die.

Things like what is a DYI HID light ??

Lots of women bikers in Eugene...and on of the best mechanics I've ever used was a woman here at the LBS. Sadly, she moved to the East Coast.....

hehe, gotta luv the boobish verbage!

There is a lack of female bicyclists and I, for one, am trying to improve that - in fact I'm on a subcommittee for my Club to develop more intermediate length and challenging rides to keep the interest of new riders as they get better. And many of our new members are women.

I went riding with a female bike mechanic last weekend. (I don't really know her though, she was friends with someone else in our group.)

I hope you can sleep now.

I've seen a female mechanic at an LBS. She's about 220 pounds, has very short spikey hair, and smokes copius amounts of cigarettes. If you're ever in Hawaii, I'll tell you how you can find her, but I suspect she isn't interested much in dating men.

This is sooooooooooo politically incorrect, I love it. Can anyone imagine if Koffee were here to read this? Dave would still be trying to find his ass.

Meh, I started two women off on cycling this year (by making bikes available to them). One is my gf and another is her friend. Now, those two are encouraging ME to ride more.

Now THAT's motivation. Sorry, just had to brag

That's because they are chained up in the basement at Walmarts around the world working for slave wages as incompetent bike assemblers. I heard it on the Internet; it must be true.

Hmmm... ok so when was the last time you nearly crashed because of a good looking girl or guy?

I nearly hit the kerb on Sunday evening because of a beautiful girl I saw waiting at a bus stop... skirt like a belt and the looks of a model...

I don't see how that can be not PC. Are we to believe that women don't get all "jiggling and bouncing...boing, boing, floppsy, jiggely, bouncy, bouncy," when they run? That's like saying that the sun rising in the east and setting in the west is politically incorrect as well...

Maybe you are confusing correct with politically correct? The climate of hyper sensitivity amongst the women has been pretty strong from time to time in these forums. Most of the storms left with Koffee but ya know...

That's all I'm sayin'.

There are lots of girls on bikes in Toronto. I'm one of them. (Yes, there are female bike mechanics here too.)

Seems I have not seen really young oriented women racers. I see more women riders who appear to either be commuting or maybe the recreational clubs. Recreational ride clubs, I'd guess I've sensed, maybe 20% of their members are women. That's my guesstimates.

Yeah, I get it. I thought this whole PC thing had blown over and died down. Heck, when I was in school, they had these suggestions for dating like asking for permission to kiss a chic or to touch her tits! Gee, you'll know when she's ready and asking for it just kills her mood!

And I'm only going by "correct" terms, forget the PC BS! If you're fat, I'm calling you "fat", none of this "plus-sized" or "gravitationally-challenged" sh|t !!! If you're denial about yourself, then maybe I can help you along with a dose of reality damnit!!!

First, she's not a chic. Don't stir the pot, let sleeping dogs lie....

I don't know what it is about where I live, but I notice a huge lack of male runners here. About 90% of the riders are Men, usually 30 something (and older) guys, but hardly any running, especially in tight runners shorts.

I wish I could see lots and lots of male runners here...running here, running there
running everywhere...jiggling and bouncing...boing, boing, floppsy, jiggely
bouncy, bouncy and uncontrolled, like Matt Shirvington.

Why do they ride bikes ?? Why don’t they run instead?? I think it would be better than all that squishing and bending on their joints and…other stuff. And I have NEVER EVER EVER seen a male bike mechanic wearing tight pants EVER...what’s up with that???

Hell, if you like it that much, and you live in the dfw area, I'd be happy to run by your house, in whatever state of undress you require. Provided you're hot.

As I sit here in my office overlooking the O&E towpath, I can safely say that there are PLENTY of women cyclists - and I get to watch them ride by all day.
