    I shared this article around. My husband wanted to add one more item: Don't assume that the new bicyclist will share your passion.
    That's good advice for any hobby that someone is new to.

    Thank you, I feel validated. And I don't feel like an anti-feminist for having these thoughts and feelings. :)

    National Bike Summit: Women's Forum

    I fear I'm going to sound anti-feminist. I've been to several women's panels, women's forums, gender summits, etc for women in science, women in the postdoctorate, women in research, etc. I tried but...

    It's painful. There's no way around that. Coping strategies help keep you from going crazy while you're getting through the pain. They don't take the pain away.

    121 seconds

    These videos are SO funny. You don't need to go to the gym to get a good workout. All you need is a 1970's flared wool suit, a pogo ball, a garden hose, and a small child.
