    For the record, I'm bi. I ride both a bent and a DF. Not at the same time, silly.

    If I were a woman or a gay male, I would have the hots for Fabian Cancellara. If I could get a body transplant from anyone, it would be him.

    Now, just to be clear, this question in no way relates to my own sexual preferences, not that there's anything wrong with that but I was curious if there is diversity in the biking world.

    A related question: Do you personally know a gay/lesbian cyclist? I haven't come across one yet. Everyone in the Forum seems to be a single or a happily married hetero.

    Cheers!
    Personally I care very little about who a sportsman or sportswoman chooses to share a bed with. I'll follow someone based on their abilities on the bike rather than their sexual prowess.

    As for gay cyclists, I'm not aware that any cyclists I know personally are gay (it's not something I tend to ask people, because it makes no difference to me), but use another forum where two of the female members are reasonably open about being in a relationship with each other.

    So anyway, this is a good question, and sort of a dumb question. People ride bikes, so it would figure that some of them would be gay. Or straight.
    Some of my gay and lesbian friends/acquaintances ride bikes. Some seriously in spandex, some casually in cut-offs.

    I think it would be a good thing if someone were to come out in the Peloton. Is there some sort of code of silence about homosexuality in professional cycling? Is it homophobia? Or is the Pro Roadie Class just so evolved that it doesn't mean anything?

    Have we not yet figured out that a peloton full of cheating dopers are not good role models?

    I know a few openly gay cyclists and racers. The street/hipster/fixie crowd around here is full of them too, you'd probably get a ton of positive answers if you asked this on the fixed gear forum.

    Important... ? No. Interesting... Perhaps. But as you say, in the greater scheme of things it scarcely matters

    Ask a group of cyclist if there are any gay cyclist and they will probably say no. Ask anyone from the NFL if there are any gay cyclist and you will probably get a different answer.

    Some day in the future, folks will find this thread and wonder why we spent so much time discussing this mundane topic.

    Given the relatively poor odds of winning, I doubt very many are gay. Most are likely sad, at least at the end of the race. [

    Oddly the group I ride with now only has 1 gay woman in the group. Not that any of us care. The group I originally started riding with was predominantly lesbian and I was one of few non-lesbians. That first group has the most obnoxiously awful jerseys (neon yellow and purple)....they look like Easter peeps LOL.
