Having lived through two crashes, I agree with the article, that the fit is critical. By virtue of the right fit, crashing at 42km/h and 34 km/h, I walked away with permanent road rash scar, stitches over the eye, cracked shoulder and two broken helmets, but no apparent change to my personality!! In fact after crashing the first time, I stayed with the same helmet and did so again after crash 2, simply because the helmet did its job.
Clothes - Women: going to interpret "gear" as including clothes. Just got first order from Cyclechic. Love it! Came in two days from ordering online, fits great and has a bit of pizzazz. Very pleased. Also had a nice little note and very cute packaging. And yes, the saddle padding is a little different. The tag reads "I love my bike, like a fast ride, on a hot day." Gotta love clothes with that attitude. :)
Cycling in the summer can be about casual riding, sprinting, spinning, big-ring hammerfests or what ever your chosen type of riding is. The BCC was founded for the sole purpose to network cyclists. It has grown into a successful club which accommodates Riders at almost all skill/fitness levels. Everyone should be able to participate and have fun at their respective levels.
