Because, from what I’ve read, this isn’t seen often (I see it all of the time, of course):
Somebody call the UN to let them know all is finally well in the United States of America! With this out of the way they can work on something serious, like North Korea or Iran. Phew!
All kidding aside, because c’mon, man… it’s the UN, looking at cycling from my perspective I don’t understand the consternation with the whole “male dominance in cycling” thing. I do get that the male of the species likes cycling, so there are a lot of us at club rides and such. I get that, but dominate? Populate, maybe. Anyway, I had a little chuckle just before I took that photo because here we are, cruising down the road at 21 mph with my wife and our friend, Diane in the lead with three guys in their draft and we’re just riding.
While we can’t do much about anyone else’s feelings (nor would we attempt to), in our group you’re judged not by whether you wear drop back bibs, but on the content of your ability to pull through.
And that is as it should be.
