Women on Bicycles
So, we’re two weeks home from our latest trip abroad; a trip where we lived and worked in close proximity to a bunch of men and no women. Right before that, we made another trip to the Middle East likewise with no women around at all. We’re home now though, and as luck would have it we’re home right at the beginning of Spring… the time when it’s possible to break your neck looking.
We’ve also been spending a lot of time on our bike since we gave up our car, riding along many of the streets that are popular with cyclists like Guilford Ave, 27th Street, Falls Road, Aliceanna, Water Street, etc. We’ve noticed a lot of other riders. We’ve noticed them noticing us. We’ve noticed that a lot of them are pretty women.
Let’s face it: the idea of a woman on a bicycle is pretty damn sexy. We’d go so far as to say that almost any woman can become more attractive just by sitting on a bike. It’s kind of got the same effect as a pair of high heels, red lipstick, or a little black dress. If you’re a woman on a bike in Baltimore, you can pretty much assume we’ve got a crush on you. And we’re really into the idea of bikedates.
We’re always keeping an eye out on the street, but for now let’s take a look around the web, shall we?
