You gotta fight for the right
Research published recently in the Journal of Sexual Medicine suggests that regular cycling can potentially affect the sexual health of women. While not a new idea, the latest work finds that what matters most is the configuration of the bicycle and its consequences for riding position.

Every illustration was created using Adobe Illustrator and are 100% vector. Each bike is made up of hundreds of individual illustrations and assembled as a complete bike. The bikes are historically accurate and when possible the actual rider has been consulted to ensure the authenticity.
Ride through work sites that are closed off to traffic, the workmen don't mind. (Of course this does not apply to work sites on bike paths.) You can also ride into permanently closed-off roads.
The brotherhood of the "Fêlés du Grand Colombier" is open to everyone who is at least 18 years old, climbing, in the same day, two, three or four faces, there and back, of the Grand Colombier by different sides riding (or pushing!) a bicycle propelled by the one and only muscular force..

And by way of background:
- bike forums thread in which Forester makes his poor-taste remarks,
- Cities fit for cycling in The Times, and
- Kim Harding's alternative proposed eight point manifesto for safer cycling.
