Girls On Bikes, Part II

I'm going to overhaul this blog entry based on some feedback I've received.

Joe Friel argues in "The Cyclist's Training Bible" that women and men are not all that different in terms of athletics. There are inherent physiological differences between men and women which, among other things, affect body composition and diet. Furthermore, as a rule, women tend to have longer legs and smaller hands than men of the same height.

In bicycling, this means that women, particularly shorter women, may want to test ride women's bicycles, such as the Specialized Dolce , before making a purchasing decision. The Dolce is not for everyone, but if it is for you, it will save you a fair amount of trouble.

I think it's great that women participate in sports, including bicycling and rowing. I fully encourage this.

Happy now?
