OK - so that's not even remotely what I looked like when I did yoga at BicycleSpace last night. But it was still a good time! On Mondays at 7:15 (and Saturdays at 8:30am) the shop hosts free yoga classes (on a donations basis, which benefit local bike causes and groups). I didn't catch the name of the non-profit our donations went to but it was something encouraging women in cycling; I've got no qualms with that!
I found this article when searching for like-minded bike groups, What Will Encourage More Women to Bike, which talks about just that and says that safety is what women want when thinking about biking around town. Now I want to read this book!
I rode the Rock Creek Park path to work for the first time yesterday and am hooked - no stop lights, no waiting and gorgeous scenery. What I want when biking is smooth roads, sun protection and clean air.
