Body & Soul

Like any sport, cycling isn't always lovely. We still love our sport, but sometimes there’s a whole load of unpleasant things to deal with; saddle sores, urinary tract infections, riding whilst on your period to mention a few. As well as our top body cycling tips to keep you comfortable in the saddle, we also tackle issues surrounding women and cycling. We talk to professionals, shop owners, and female cyclists to discuss body image, plus we take a look at the marketing towards women in cycling, such as the ‘pinkifcation’ of products for ‘feminisation.’
