The ongoing battle for women’s cycling wages on. While we fight at the top to gain more media exposure for women in sports, we’re also at the grass-roots wading our way through ill-fitting clothing and unsuitable kit in order to comfortably ride our bikes.
Fortunately, our slowly winning side has some formidable forces like the Breeze Network who are working tirelessly to promote women’s cycling with organised rides and events. Along with big brand names producing incredible riding kit, we also have a wider variety of female specific bikes on the market too.
While no woman – or only bionic ones – can pick up a pro bike and become a champion in record time, we all need to start somewhere. That entry level bike is just that, it’s your ticket into the wonderful word of cycling, and just so you know, it’s a one-way ticket.
