Much cycling. Many hotties. Random photos.
As an Olympian I am used to riding on the road and mixing with traffic. But all bike riders, no matter how experienced, are fragile. Even the flash-looking ones with the expensive bikes have nothing more than a bit of foam on their head for protection if a serious accident happens. Most people are nervous about riding on the road, and the lack of safe options discourages people, especially women, from even trying.
It’s sobering to know that in 2013, 50 Australians lost their lives while riding a bike. This year more than 30 have lost their lives. Their families will never see them again.
I think instead of debating who “owns” the road, we should collaborate to share them.Kate Bates: Time to break the cycle of discontent | dailytelegraph.com.au (via womenscycling)
