Wish someone knew how to use their lock...

Either I took a photo so they have one after their bike is stolen, or I'm just posting because the lock job is ridiculous(nonexistant).

"Besides having to decide whether to dress as a male or female while biking, don't forget the double standard once women arrive at work. Women are also held to a higher standard when it comes to dressing for work. That can be a deterrent to…"

"Women have to win. That's the only way we can save civilization. When women have equal rights, the society thrives. Conversely, in places where women are treated like property, people live in the stone age. Just look around.  You cannot…"

"A long time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) somebody told me that the easiest way to avoid harassment was to dress as gender-neutral as possible, because then everyone will assume you're a dude. I think it works pretty well en route, but the…"

"One other observation.  As a frequent user of the post office - everyone knows me by my helmet, green jacket and old Schwinn bicycle and trailer - I have handed out dozen of Chicago bike maps to the women clerks, even bicycle catalogues - sure,…"

"I agree with Nancy's sentiment, as well as that of the article that women may face more harrassment on bikes. I've heard from friends and it has been my own experience that there can be a lot of name calling, particularly about your body.…"

"My wife says similar things as Nancy's last few lines. Women just are not safe alone in places that many men ride alone (if the men even are). I was thinking about that recently while riding a long deserted stretch of the Centennial Trail…"

"Thank you for sharing Nancy. Everything you said makes sense to me. It is obvious that things are different for women. Most Moms today are in their huge Suvs "

"There maybe something more than logic as to why the percentage of women riding is smaller.  It may be seen as "not lady-like", or only "tom-boys" ride. Or a matter of personal safety.  One sees many older Hispanic men…"
