Cycling For Women Cycling For Women
The Editors of Bicycling Magazine
Women are given the answers they need to make a smooth entry into all phases of bicycling, from picking the right bicycle to touring Australia.
"Cycling is, after all, a sport for everyone. For women, it can be particularly rewarding because it puts us in command and in control. Improvement is easy; it simply takes practice. Success is measured by miles ridden and terrain overcome. It's a sport that's simultaneously exhilarating and grueling. The experience of any ride varies from elation to frustration, but the result is always satisfying." -- Connie Carpenter Phinney, Gold Medallist, 1984 Olympic Road Race
