Is there such a thing as a 'feminine' way to ride a bike?

These women know how to ride a bike. :D

I think they prefer podium flowers rather than flowers on their bikes or their jerseys.

Brit Jackson (Victoria) took the silver medal in the sprint, bronze in the keirin. Tahlay Christie (Western Australia) took gold in both events.
ITS Adelaide, junior women.

Most covered before many times elsewhere; just check out the diagrams of lady feet and ankles, the descriptions of the different lady riders by city....

^^ excerpted from above linky

After a while you just kind of deal with it, because listing out these small annoyances mostly serves to make you feel bad.


Replace 'bad' with 'bored'.

For the 'big annoyances' - do something.

In either analogy I'm going to end up kicking something.
