I am a mother of two who loves cycling but with my thick mommy thighs I look god awful in pretty much all biking clothes. With the padded shorts, the elastic cinches right at the curviest part of my thighs. I am not even overweight for my height, but I look like a stuffed sausage in everything I try on.

I know it’s not a fashion show and that my complaints can be seen as silly by others, but it’s hard to be an older woman who is still fit enough to keep up and yet all of the styles seem to be for slim women in their twenties.

There is a hole in the market! A million dollar hole for anyone smart enough to fill it.

Of course, the mainstream media are not going to do the work that you have been doing, because you talk about life around cycling, and not just racing. I understand your decision but, I hope to hear from you soon, here or anywhere else.

Wish you the best Sarah. Thank you very much!

I’ve just listened to the last podcast and want to say a massive thank you to you and Dan. I fell in love with cycling just three years ago and you have played such a huge part in my getting to know and understand women’s cycling. Your passion, energy and enthusiasm and tireless work to bring cycling to the fans has been incredible, and I have so appreciated it. I will really miss listening to you and Dan every week! Women’s cycling owes you an immense debt of gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you! The podcast and everything else, well, it’s been a beautiful thing. You’ve brought me a lot of joy, and I thank you for that. All the best for whatever you do next, to you and Dan. xxxxxx

Comment on Podcast 2017 Episode 36 – It Could Be Like Giorgia Bronzini by Robin Petty https://prowomenscycling.com/2017/12/06/podcast-2017-episode-36-it-could-be-like-giorgia-bronzini/comment-page-1/#comment-133020 Fri, 08 Dec 2017 07:14:29 +0000 http://prowomenscycling.com/?p=12257#comment-133020 Couldn’t adequately reduce down to a tweet. Sincere thank you for all your hard work over the years. The praise and gratitude you will continue to receive from riders, fans and industry is richly deserved.
I do hope the mainstream, cycling coverage and media will pick up your baton as agitators and not purely report on races and rider interviews. So the minimum wage issue, sexism, inequality, the fact La Course and the ‘Madrid-round-and-round’ [1] aren’t really a substitute for a women’s TDF or Vuelta stage race. There are ways journalists can bang the drum about those issues in mainstream TV and press without scaring sponsors or governance.
Also want to say well done for coverage of juniors – the exploits of younger riders has never been something that’s been buried away by this podcast or in your articles and that’s hugely impressive.
Thank you again
Robin

A little background to why Camilla is moving to Hitec Products.

Comment on Podcast 2017 Episode 31 – Being Italian IS a Tactic by Rebecca https://prowomenscycling.com/2017/09/27/podcast-2017-episode-31-being-italian-is-a-tactic/comment-page-1/#comment-132485 Wed, 04 Oct 2017 17:46:16 +0000 http://prowomenscycling.com/?p=12206#comment-132485 I have nothing against Chantal BUT I really wanted Annemiek to win (Double Rainbow Bands!). It was a GREAT race but I wish there were more attacks before that final cimb.

I feel had they (the Dutch) ramped up the pace in that last lap and bridged across to Chantal in that leading group before the climb, and attack like they did at the start of the climb shedding a bunch of riders and going over the top with just Kasia, Anna, Annemiek, and possible Katrin (as they were obviously the best climbers of the day). With Anna and Annemiek trading attacks until one of them got away there could have been a Dutch 1-2 or at the very least the Dutch getting 2 medals.

…but it didn’t happen.
