    Very cool that they're having a demo day just for women, but "sweet floral demo van"? Ick.
    "How about if we all just try to follow these very simple rules of the road? Drive like the person ahead on the bike is your son/daughter. Ride like the cars are ambulances carrying your loved ones to the emergency room. This should cover everything, unless you are a complete sociopath."
    David Desautels, in a letter to velonews.com

    Random babblings and some stuff to look at.

    April 2 at Conte's in Arlington

    Conte's in Arlington is also having a ladies night. I guess Specialized is making the rounds.


    http://contebikes.com/page.cfm?PageID=614

    Oh yes it’s LADIES NIGHT! Thurs. April 2, 7 p.m.
    6:15 p.m. Ladies Only Ride

    Considering a new bike? Curious about other bike styles and how they might feel to ride? Do you like to stay in the loop with the latest cycling products? Conte’s in Arlington will host Specialized Bicycles on Thursday, April 2, as they bring in a slew of their '09 Designed for Women (D4W) bikes.

    We will hold a group ride starting at 6:15 p.m. during which you are welcome to demo any bikes they bring* (or any bike in the shop).

    Starting at 7:00 p.m., Specialized will explain what differentiates a D4W bike, what the benefits are for you, Body Geometry components (saddles, shoes, gloves, chamois, etc.); how to dress for the weather, and tools and equipment you need to get started. We will also talk about the importance of doing a bike fit, as well as perform a demonstration of a bike fit.

    Wine and light snacks will be served and we’ll hold a raffle with some great giveaways. REMEMBER, this is a LADIES ONLY EVENT – feel free to bring a friend!

    RSVP if you plan to attend (see their website for the email address).


    * All riders must provide an ID which will be held while they demo a bike, and they must sign a release form from Specialized. All riders must wear a helmet.
