    • Weighed myself today and I'm 167.3. Now 12.7 pounds off of my goal instead of 8 like I was last week. I'm dieting properly and doing a lot of cardio so it's a win win.

      • losing weight sucks.
        especially if you're of the female variety.

        i normally have to lose 15-20 lbs during racing season... not because i'm tubby, but because climbing hills = waaaaaaaay easier when you're 15 lbs lighter. sure i lose a little flatland speed. but superior wind position and smarts tend to win.

              A lot of the women riders I know are pretty tall, for women. There are a good amount that are shorter as well, but its funny, I've never seen a female rider (over the age of 16) who isn't either less than 5'2 or 5'3 or more than 5'7 or 5'8. My guess is you are more of an endurance rider, and less of a sprinter?

                  indeed.

                  i used to ride about 60-100 miles a day in SA. mountains! ZOOM ZOOM up.

                  sprinting requires a different body type, just like running. distance runners are lean and efficient. sprinting and track cyclists tend to be muscle, and lots of it.

                  i.e. theo bos



                  the rest are basically any sized... the neat part is about cycling, you can be whatever shape, and still be competitive.

                  • First thing that came to mind when I saw rider...was jockey or horseback rider (equestrian), I wont lie. I then thought, "AQ is a jockey? That is awesome." haha. I was tired at the moment. Bikes are cool too, I guess.

                            i've ridden horses too.

                            amazing story: riding horses is strenuous.

                            • If you want a workout then start swimming. I think that is the most underrated excercise out there and it will have you worn out in no time. Add in flipturns and it gets even harder. It doesnt put any pressure on your knees like running and you work out every part of your body.
