Why are ther so few Female riders?

Recommended Posts

We have a good size group here in NYC; and I noticed very few to none female riders. I am curious if this is the case else where, and why?

Because women don't do risks. They wait at the finish line then go home with the winners.

Same thing with bicycling; in the Netherlands women bicyclists make up 51% of the highly accurate stats of that bicycle friendly nation, in the US women bicyclists make up 70-90%, although a lot of those women bicyclists are actually children under the age of 16 puttering around their suburbs.

EUCs are considerably more risky that bicyclists, so no wonder most women avoid them like the plague. However, I would also argue the way we have to weave and bob on them, often without helmets, makes them safer than bicycling from getting hit by car drivers, because while you get a lot of room and respect while in an EUC, you're a cockroach when you wear a helmet on a plebian bicycle.

I wish my wife would ride with me, but I have given up. It will never ever happen.

This reminds me of my shock at finding out that the president and vice president of the Science Fiction club at my college were both women. Not only that, they were both race car drivers.

IMHO it has less to do with risk and more to do with the hobby being perceived as "Nerdy" at least that was my wife's reaction. we're porbably also suffering from the sausage party effect; where women comes in, realize that there were no other women and leave immediately.

I am told that there are more women riders in Russia, not sure why it would be different there.

Just withhold sex from her until she complies. That'll work for sure.

That's a sure fire way for her to either shut down in that area as women can do, or go find some OPP (#yeah you know me#)

no idea.. but i will agree that when riding around town and the local parks, the ONLY people who approach me are women, they are intrigued and have had more than a few want to give it a try.. they fail miserably of course and hand it back to me like wtf is wrong with this thing and move on lol.. even a few women with their boyfriends/husbands have approached me and enquired but usually the guy will say nothing lol

This is the killer move my friend, high success rate. Lady magnet. :whistling:

In case I blow a fuse and decide yo test out trying to perform thst more....I would anticipate a 175% succes rate...why?

Simple math: I would fail miserably no doubt about that. That would lead to yet another trip to the hospital ..not on an EUC...taking into account how many nurses you meet before seeing a doctor....someone is bound to be impressed with the answer to what I thinking doi g that more when explaining what happen and how I would get that level of injuries.

An answer down the line going like this: I were hoping to find such a kind and beautiful person at the hospital so I decided it was worth the pain and risk. So here we both are...

( @Rehab1 how far am I of? You are probably one of theost experienced with your accident history 😉😁)
