This one's for the ladies

We went mountain biking for the first time since November and, I kid you not, there are palpably swollen spots on my hiney. Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun. I need to remember to eat breakfast beforehand, though, as apparently I get a little woozy without something in my stomach.

I noticed this time that there were a lot of other female mountain bikers. Usually the women are vastly outnumbered by the men, and they still were, but this time the ratio was something closer to 2 to 3 instead of the usual 1 to 8. I was definitely glad to see them out there. I'm not some sort of radial feminist, demanding equal participation in everything just for its own sake; instead, I'm glad that other women are enjoying something fun, despite it being a more traditionally male sport. Good job, ladies.
