Girls on Bikes

It's no secret that a woman's performance on a bike is different to that of a man's, and is always going to be different no matter how hard we try! This means everything from how we train to what we eat is different. This is a place to discuss and share everything a girl goes through on the bike.

Gem W Girls on Bikes Tribe

Contributorgold Gem W Hi Ladies. A friend of mine convinced me to do an all female Sprint Triathlon in August. With that in mind, I haven't ridden a bicycle since middle school, so it has been fun. I purchased a hybrid bike since I want to make sure this is a sport I will actually keep up with before I spend crazy amounts of money on the best bicycle. Either way, I have been riding my bike to my gym workouts (about 6 miles to and from) and will start really pushing myself in July in order to be ready for the 12.9 mile ride. :) I'm excited!!

If your bike is fitted properly, you will not have a problem. I've had several bikes over my 12+ years of riding and it has not been an issue once I was professionally fitted. The fit can be costly but it's a must do...

Peggy A Girls on Bikes Tribe

I was thinking that.  I think the handle bars need to be raised.  I tried myself but conuldn't pull them up after loosening the collar.  Next week, after my try a tri, I'll see if I can get someone to give me a hand...

If it's cold my hands go numb in about 3 seconds! But I did also notice my hands being a bit weirg after riding 100 miles without gloves on - the centre of my palm in particular was all tingly/numb for a couple of da...

Jennie K Girls on Bikes Tribe

My hands always go numb while I cycle. They also go numb at other times too.  I was diagnosed with Thoracic oultet syndrome (prior to me ever cycling).  I know that mine is related to that, but other things could cau...
