Heather replied to Melissa Manak's discussion Ladies of Cycling community.. I need help Stat
"My hair is wavy so I'm not sure if this is a good fix for you--but I sometimes just clip the top of my hair in a barrette on the top of my head. That way it doesn't get all flat and has some body when I take it out."

Heather replied to Julie Hochstadter's discussion The 19th-century health scare that told women to worry about "bicycle face"
"Well, I'm pretty sure I have "car face." Bicycle face sounds much better."

Heather replied to h' 1.0's discussion New app lets you scan a license plate and send a message to driver
"Well, for instance, I can imagine women getting unwanted messages a la "Hey baby" or much worse.  So more of a potential harassment issue."

Heather replied to h' 1.0's discussion New app lets you scan a license plate and send a message to driver
"Mmm, I have a lot of privacy concerns about this. And I suspect a lot of other people will too."

Heather replied to Skip Montanaro 12mi's discussion Montrose v. Lawrence
"Montrose all the way. I also tend to take Wilson if it's more convenient. I actively avoid Lawrence and Foster--too crazy. I've recently found Leland to be a good route east from the river. A bit off-topic but I've started avoiding…"

Heather replied to Jeff Schneider's discussion A Plea for the Idaho Stop
"I also have noticed a marked decline in road rules adherence this spring, for some reason, as both a driver and a cyclist. Just yesterday, a large SUV slowed down for a yellow light, then actually *sped up* as I started to cross the intersection on…"

Heather replied to Kris Hendry's discussion Harrasment As A Female...........
"I don't think she's that worried about her safety--she's wondering if there's anything she can do about the verbal harassment. Ignoring it isn't really possible since now she's anticipating it as well as having to…"

"Hi Heather, Once I have a few people lined up, I'm going to try to find a time and place for us to shoot a few things. Please add me to your list and I will keep you updated. Thanks! John"

Heather replied to John LaVere's discussion Commuter Fashion Statements!
"Yes, exactly. if I'm going to a long ride, I will definitely dress for it. But if I'm just hopping on for a few miles, or if I am going to a social event, I will wear my regular clothes, which are usually some kind of "fashion…"

Heather replied to John LaVere's discussion Commuter Fashion Statements!
"I am happy to help too--I often wear heels etc while running errands on my bike."

Heather replied to Kris Hendry's discussion Harrasment As A Female...........
"I wish there were a good way to deal with it besides flipping the bird, which doesn't seem to help. On foot at least you can try to shame or humiliate them, but on a bike, it's not like you want to stop."

Heather replied to Brian's discussion I was ambushed
"This is horrible! Please take care of yourself and try to follow up with the police. It seems ridiculous that they can't find the car. I would be completely furious."

Heather replied to Thunder Snow's discussion Divvy Temporarily Closed for Snow
"I don't get the outrage. They have indeed always said they might suspend service in extreme weather. If you are so committed to riding in snow and ice, I salute you--but then it's worth investing in a bike with the gear to handle it."
