busy street. One of my cycling friends in town (an LCI) told me I
should wear Terry women's cycling skorts and otherwise try to look
female on the bike. Lauren says when she looks feminine, motorists are
much more accomodating. Yet another reason for men to shave our legs.
I'm slightly built so I could probably get away with it.
Lauren (not Lauren Cooper in this group) is a serious atheletic road
cyclist, but I've also seen her putter around town wearing long skirts.
