    Womans only section ?

    My wife is showing interest in riding and for some reason
    I thought/think there is a womans specific section here somewhere ?

    Yes, there is but your wife must ask Tom Stormcrowe (admin mod) for permission to enter that forum. (Keeps weirdos out!)
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Tom spends at least some of his time in the 50+ area -- if you can find one of his posts you can use the link there to PM him.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    When any of the administrators (3 blue stars) are online you can find them by scrolling to the bottom of the main BF page and clicking on their name. Then send that person a PM asking for permission to join the Women's forum.

    You need to have at least 50 posts to send a PM to gain access to the Women's forum. We've had some men try to sneak in so we now require the 50 post minimum. After that you can send a PM to me or Siu Blue Wind to get access to the forum.
