A Woman Needs A Bicycle Like A Man Needs A Fish

Or, whatever.

Dave Longdon has a great write-up on the fast-rising women's local road racing scene, in which he highlights the roles of veteran mentors like Gina Kavesh and Martha Walsh.

I have a daughter, graduating from college this year. She has a bike and she's strong. Her life is wide-open ahead of her, and I know she'll try many wonderful things. I hope that if she ever decides to try bike racing, she'll have access to a mentor like Gina or Martha.

Super fast girl on my team looking for help!

This is a post for my friend and training partner(before I got hurt) Jennifer Wheeler.
She is really, really fast on her bike. She has won every race she has entered this year, by several minutes. She is known to break away at mile 0 and stay away the entire race. She has just barely been racing for one year.

Here is her story and website.
