Girls on Bicycles

Originally, I'd planned to write about beautiful women on bicycles, that rare sight on America's streets. But as I searched for photos of the aforementioned beautiful women on bicycles, I came across the featured shot. It's a thought-provoking image of a wee tyke-fighter holding a Kalishnakov machine gun, (c) Gary Trotter. So moving from fashion (Milanese 30-somethings looking oh-so-sessy on their Bianchis), to the benefits (and perils) of urban riding in a dress and without a helmet, we're brought to the topic of armed conflict and the plight of child soldiers. Ponder for a second or twenty.

*If you're a woman who rides a bicycle, post a pic somewhere as inspiration to your sistren. You can be stylish, save money, and avoid parking tickets while perhaps attracting the jerk in the red "Fiorano" who'd love nothing more than to take you on a Prada shopping spree.

I bumped into your blog through Sarotorialist's blog. Interesting perspectives... very disturbing photo of child with bike... and HEAVY duty weapon! Makes my "joy" rides somehow seem less gleeful... I'm suffering from guilt that my life is amazing relative to what many others are enduring each day.. argh.. ah well... reality! Thanks for it!

oh...i saw another "girls on bicycle" visual for you...this one a bit more sexy than sappy. it happened so fast there was no time for photos...

a girl walking her bike over this pretty rough gravelly terrain-wearing a white flowing skirt, wedged heels, cute little top, a back pack and glasses-you just don't see that everyday....neyway it caught the attention of these two guys in a white truck driving by who whistle at her. i don't think she noticed....

sorta sensual and erotic dontchathink?
