Do women ride in Paris? Hell ya.


I’ve read elsewhere that one way to gauge the bike-friendlienss of a city is to assess the number of women riders. In Paris, it would be silly to even ask such a question, as bicycles are woven into the culture. Its worth noting, however, the particular version of femininity that French culture displays, and how that does not deter riding in the least.

    I’ve read that as well. Women and children riding is the true gauge of the cycling culture. Racing, commuting, whatever. If you don’t have them on board, then it’s not very substantive. Sort of like our Riv rides… 🙂 Neat bike in the third pic!
