I ride strictly for recreation. I am very paranoid about leaving my bike anywhere I can't see it; as the LBS sales guy said, the best policy is if it's not in your house, it's under you butt. I...

I think women getting other women involved in the scene would be a major factor in why there's a high percentage of female riders in Minneapolis. There's nothing like that here. And...
