I had a great comment from Shasta – sounds like a female me. But most intriguing is her question at the end. Where are the women? I know several female riders who ride daily, but none who commute. I can only wonder why… anyone have any idea? I’d love to get some input; I’m going to talk to the girls I know who ride, and see what they have to say, and I’ll write an article on that soon.
“Being a big girl and not riding since the 80’s also I’m wondering what kind of bike you got and any recommendations for the bigger rider. I go into the bike shops and the “kids” are very polite and stuff but I feel so self conscience about asking for help. Where are the women?“
