What is it about joining in on a group activity that makes us feel it is necessary to give everyone a PSA regarding our potential performance? It’s important to note, also, that no one ever asks this of you when you show up to a new group ride. No scary gang of girls rushes up on you, demanding to know if you will slow them down on the hills. 

"Goals aren't always about succeeding. Most of the time they are about really putting in a real effort to possibly succeed." Read the interview.

Everybody knows that getting on a bike gets you svelte, but the perks to cycling don't stop there. From insta-friends to instant street cred, there's more to cycling than just feeling fit. Here are the top ten reasons being a babe on a bike is rad...

I can be quite an over-thinker. I get stuck between should and want, think and feel. I make things black or white with no room for grey. If I do what I should do, I’ll miss out on all the fun. If I do what I want to do, I will screw everything up. Maybe, just maybe, there is room to live a little...

Back then, stories of women "looking tired", having "dark circles under their eyes", or having symptoms as extreme as "clenched jaws and bulging eyes" ran rampant as women experimented with a new invention called The Bicycle.
