What’s the bike scene like in Chicago for females?
In Chicago its very spread out but you can always find events to go to. I haven’t really found a group or anything to stick with but on The Chain Link, a local bike forum, it tells you of all the rides coming up so it’s easy to get involved. There are less females than males for sure, but there are a good amount of girls you see out riding. In Springfield, Missouri I ride with a group called the Shiftless Bastards. We do weekly and monthly rides, and there are the regular girls that show up.
What’s your favourite ride right now? My first road bike is my SE Draft 2009 – nothing too special but it’s been great. I’ve had it over a year and I haven’t even had a flat.
