The Girl with the Stilettos and Cross Bike
This photo has been making the rounds on Facebook, and I thought I’d share it here.
The woman who posted to it FB thought it might have originated in Sweden, which just goes to show you that not only do they have The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but also The Girl with the Stilettos & Cross Bike–a woman who may prove to be even more mysterious than Lisbeth Salander.
At any rate, I fell in love with the photo and thought it did a few wonderful things, like:
- Empowered women to ride
- Empowered riders to still be feminine
- Laughed really hard at itself
- Enjoyed life just a little more than everyone else
- Set the example for having some FUN.
But it got me wondering…..is it harder to ride with those things on, just like it is harder to walk? Are those heels any good in the sand? Could this new piece of equipment give rise to a new category of cyclocross racing?
