Earning your Assos

Postby Parker » Fri Mar 23, 2012 10:18 am

Hi Everyone

Here's the link to an article that appeared on SheRides Cycling this morning, a story about Shari Aubrey and her journey from a bike path to beach road. Her challenges and her success and ultimately the empowerment that she's achieved from running and riding a bike.

Thank you for reading.

Cheers
Rowena

Oh, and she's an inspiration to us all. Riding on beach road - incredible! Hear the tinkle as the glass ceiling falls... women could never play golf, but look, look at them now!

We’re discussing a woman who used to eat one block of Cadbury’s a day and consider it okay. Not anymore; she now only consumes good chocolate from France and Italy.


No longer is she a mere glutton - she's a glutton with class and sophistication.



But srsly, this is inspirational to you? To anyone?

I, for one, found the article inspirational!

I can relate being a late-comer to the sport in my early 40's, and I've done things that I never though possible...setting myself achievable goals along the journey to challenge myself with has boosted my confidence and progress with my riding.

Thanks for posting it Rowena.

I do. Beach Rd can be very intimidating to a n00b and it's not just the smokeboxes that make it so.
Another great read Row, keep 'em coming.

Yeah it is, I'm inspired by the smile on her face and the encouragement that she offers other women.

Very true Shaun

You'll be happy to hear I've joined the Vintage movement and scored myself a ladies vintage bicycle from Reid Cycles, it's Yellow and her name is Daphne.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, do keep reading, lot's more to come :)

I saw you and Daphne on SheRides, a sweet look indeed. In fact, that pic should be posted in the Cycling Chic thread 8)
