It's been a fantastic year at Total Women's Cycling. We've been on many adventures, interviewed some of the coolest riders in the world, and hopefully brought you guys a little joy along the way.
Of course, we keep an eye on which stories you enjoy the most - to make sure we bring you more of the same. So, now that 2016 is almost over, here's a look at which post tickled you guys the most.
The most successful stories were selected by our magical elves, who downloaded all our super secret data and applied a pageview filter in descending order. Clever.
The One About Innies and Outies
Saddle discomfort is a big problem in women's cycling, but finding the perfect saddle (plus good shorts and correct bike fit) will get you on the way to success.
Cobb saddles came up with an interesting way of determining the perfect saddle for you. And you guys were interested...
The One About Crushing Negativity
This story appearing in second place makes its writer very, very happy. Negative thoughts on the bike happen to all of us - and they can massively affect your confidence, performance and basic enjoyment. This article lists some of the most common anxiety triggers, and makes suggestions for what to think instead.
The One About Dating Female Cyclists
Being female cyclists ourselves, we know that we're awesome to date. To help out anyone who was less convinced, we listed all the reasons why...
The One About the Afghan Women's Cycling Team's Nobel Prize
Sometimes we feel like we're fighting an endless battle for equality in cycling. To be honest, sometimes that gets exhausting. But then we look at these riders who aren't just lacking in representation, aren't just lacking in kit or TV coverage - but who are actually persecuted for wanting to cycle. And we realise that we're very lucky. These women are incredible and we are so happy to see them being recognised for their bravery.
The One About Your Noisy Bike
Is your bike trying to tell you something? We listed some of the likely culprits, so that you and your steed can ride on in quiet appreciation...
The One About the Sexist Knee Pads Advert
See above, where we said 'sometimes we get tired of fighting for equality'. Guys: grow up and let us enjoy our sport without objectification.
The One Abut Lael Wilcox
This amazing adventurer beat everyone in the Trans Am bike race - including all the boys. Her nearest (male) competitor even suggested they 'cross the line together' - she told him no.
The One About Mario Cipollini Getting Naked
Erm, so that thing we said about objectification?
The difference is that Cipollini was making a statement (about where and when he wears a helmet), he looks strong not kind of weak and floppy, and he's not painted in the male gaze. So we reckon fair's fair. Regardless, obviously you guys liked it...
The One About Beating Boys
As in riding faster than them! It's ok, no need to call the emergency services. Our readers loved the story about Lael Wilcox so much that we asked Trans Continental women's winner and Adventure Syndicate founder Emily Chappell to round up a few more inspiring riders just like her...
The One About Hill Reps
Want to get faster at cycling up hills? Then cycle up lots of them! Over, and over again... (with rests in-between).
The One About Why You Shouldn't Become a Cyclist
Stop! No! We didn't mean it...
The One About the Note the Team GB Girls Left the Boys
This note was posted on Twitter from the GB Cycling Headquarters in Rio. The boys had won their medals, the girls still had everything to fight for. And they weren't taking any sh*t.
The Serious One About Cycling Club Culture
A lot of the articles above are lighthearted, fun and cheerful. This one was more of a labour of love and we are so glad that you liked it.
Go on, read it. It's got a happy ending.
The One About Maintenance Mistakes
Buying a new bike is always an exciting feeling - you're riding away from the shop on a beautiful blank canvas. It's like an empty notebook or a white sheet of paper - but infinitely more exciting. Just don't figuratively scribble all over it in the wrong pen.
The One About the Man Who Has It All
Confession: this one probably made it to the list because The Man Who Has It All shared it with his 140k followers on Twitter and 147k friends on Facebook ...
