And don’t tell the male partner of a female cyclist that HER bike needs oil – tell her!
The love to see a muscular body, but in the boundaries of a natural physical look. Abs are the most sought for body parts that most girls like.
Take, for example, the male Australian cycling forum member who argued that because women could never ride as fast as men.
He was attacked by other forum members who said that the issue of finding a bunch of the right speed affected men as well as women.
Men who “look after” women cyclists by telling them how to ride or by telling them that they are “quick for a woman” are asserting their male superiority.
Men who take over and fix punctures or put a chain back on the cogs are claiming greater mechanical ability by virtue of their gender.
I could argue that people are only intimidated when they allow themselves to feel that way.
