Some of us are natural blondes. We do exist!



Good to hear. Natural is wonderful :mrgreen:

Yeah exactly right. How dare these people colour their hair the way they want.

I say people but I assume you are talking about women? They really should know their place.

Is this 1913 or 2013?

I don't take responsibility for other peoples actions, male or female. Why would you? And anyone that would hold something against you, because someone of the same sex did something bad to them, has issues that are nothing to do with me.

You know women perve as well? The same kind of person that yells stuff out of a car or at passing riders can be male or female.

Women are just usually more sneaky about it. :wink:

The weirdest part is that it doesn't really matter what you look like, some guy always has to yell something out of the car window. I'm absolutely not a looker, but I've had guys tail me down the street and then try to cut me off and yell abuse at me when I refuse to stop. Some guys think they're entitled to harass women just because they're in public. Ever thought that we don't give a toss what you think of how we look, because we're here to ride our bikes and not to show off?

Wait, just wait, I have to look good in my lycra, I don't care if my everyday clothes are boring, BUT put me in Lycra and matching helmet,( I have 4) and matching cycle shoes, (I am Imelda Marcos ).
Now if I get abused on the road, it just means driver has no taste in style.

My wife would sneer at you - socks should also be carefully coordinated. :)

No, no, no!! Socks & shoes coordinate with the bike. Outfit & helmet coordinate with each other, but not the bike. Can 't be too matchy matchy.

Funnily enough, on my weekday commutes I'll wear whatever comes out of the drawer first, but I have to look good on the weekends.

Whoops!! Now I know what I've been doing wrong this whole time. Methinks I need to get a new bike so my outfits DON'T match the bike. :P

Hee Hee!! Maybe hold off before rushing out to the bike shop. Someone might come on and tell me I am putting cycling ladies into disrepute by clashing with my bike. That said, any excuse for n+1 though...

I'm single and I like cycling. I'd like to find a girlfriend who likes me and likes cycling. Then we can cycle together.

I just saw your work with the Camera, just take the camera with you next time you ride and take pictures and tell the nice female riders that you will send them the shots.
I think all women love men who take nice pictures of them. :D
Stop by the side of the road, take the photos when they ride past. Try and notice the local coffee shop that they have coffee at and start talking about photography. You know casual not like some psych
:P
oh and make sure your lycra looks good :roll:

Let me get this right. You want me to stand by the side of the road taking photographs of random female cyclists as they ride past. I can't see that working at all. Everyone is going to think I'm a pervert.

I had a guy ask questions of me as I was waiting at some lights. Because he had his bike and lycra on it was all good. :P Also he explained in the first few seconds that he was a civil engineer for The City of Yarra and wanted to know some answers in relation to fixing up an intersection to be more bike friendly. No camera though. :lol:

EVEN summernight eh? I feel blessed. My lycra is my underwear. It's always covered by a singlet and running shorts. Wow who would have thought that photography could be so erotic? Maybe I should dangle some prints off my crossbar. OK where's this fb photo?
