Doesn’t it hurt your foof?
Another common observation from our non-cycling mates will be their curiosity about our undercarriage.
How to choose a suitable saddle

If you cycle to work, don’t you get sweaty and gross?
Those who don’t cycle often think it’s because we’re all Tour de France speed hungry devils and cycling amongst traffic is dangerous. To them, cycling to work means you work up a sweat because you’re travelling at the speed of light.
Busted: 5 Top reasons for not cycling to work

So you must follow The Tour de France?
Just because we ride bikes, doesn’t mean we’re all avid followers of the Tour de France.
The TDF is an intense three week road race, for men. Another common misconception is believing the entire three week event takes place sorely in France.
Why is there no Women’s Tour de France?
Whether you’re a cyclist or not, it’s pretty shocking that there is not Tour de France equivilent for women.
Instead, the TDF organisers, ASO, have allowed pro women to have a single day race: La Course. Although women’s cycling has come on leaps and bounds in terms of inclusions, equality and rights, we’re still pretty frustrated that legendary races are not female friendly.
