Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

All very true, in the US a programme called "Title 9" mandated that equal emphasis - and funds - in college sports must be given to women has helped tremendously and so it is up to women to now decide they want the same sports opportunities that so far have been the bailiwick of men. As fa...

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

Re: Mick F route fast but safe.

Really?!


I think you are being deliberately argumentative, but whatever rocks your boat. No doubt someone thinks you are clever.

Re: Mick F route fast but safe.

any route can be ridden fast or slow

Re: systems lejog

LeJog Routes

Is it possible to list with links on the masthead of this forum all the various routes used by members? There is Sustrans, Cicerone, the Wimps, Mick's, any others?
