Does a girl become HOTTER once you find out she rides?(77 posts)

Does a girl become HOTTER once you find out she rides?chopper
May 21, 2003 10:09 AM
I was in Vegas this weekend partying at a club and I met this super hot girl and we were talking for a while and eventually she asked me about what I like to do. Naturally, I told her I like to road bike, and apparently she's a psychic because she said she knew I was a roadie. Then she drops the bomb and tells me she has a Bottechia that she just upgraded to STI. She couldn't tell from my exterior but internally all my synapses were firing.

This girl didn't need any help to be hot but this nevertheless did something for me. So I ask you does a girl become hotter once you find out she rides?

And if she is a licensed racer or ultra rider, she's a goddess. Throw in the ability to tune a derailleur or build a wheel, and you have a perfect 10.

Lots of hookers in Vegas, although they don't walk the streets and actually look like normal hot girls. She could have just read you like a book.

My friend went there and he couldn't believe how much attention the girls were giving him at the clubs and the casinos. He really thought his luck was great. After about 5-10 minutes they all wanted to have sex with him. For a price, unfortunately.

He thought he was getting good at spotting the pros, so he found a hot and intelligent looking girl who didn't look like a hooker and they ended up having a few drinks. And then, bam, she propositions sex for $$$. He just gave up on the women after that.

If you banged her and didn't have to pay cash for it, then more power to you.

WELL DONE! I hereby nominate Fez for poster of the #1 RBR phrase of the year. Please don't shoot the messenger, people.

"If you banged her and didn't have to pay cash for it, then more power to you."

matter of fact, i have an associate who's quite versed in buzzwords.

she'll start sly & tactful smalltalk and follow the conversation *generally* anywhere it's led by the participant. so long as specifics are avoided, she sounds like an expert on many things. she's actually expert at changing the subject.

buzzwords can be had by picking up any issue of any related magazine. a bottechia and STI, i believe, were mentioned in a recent Bicycling magazine, which can be had at virtually any bookstore, convenience store, hotel, or airport vendor.
so, what questions would nail her down and expose the truth?DougSloan

May 21, 2003 10:48 AM
You know what the answer is! OF COURSE!

Any girl who shares a passion of yours is definitely hotter. It goes without saying. If that passion is cycling, you must marry her.
twilight zone ending, I'm afraidDougSloan
May 21, 2003 10:54 AM
I always suspected that if I married someone because she was a hot cyclist, the day after the wedding she'd get a knee injury that would keep her from riding forever and cause her to hate cycling. I think that's the way the karma works.

Doug
is your name Job?mohair_chair
May 21, 2003 11:08 AM
Only a cruel God could do that!

Even if she gave up cycling the day after the wedding, you'd still be ahead, because she would at least understand your passion for it. She might not like it anymore, but she would understand, and that makes all the difference in the world. I'm sure you could talk her into crewing your race!

Besides, she doesn't need a knee. You can always get one of those bikes you pedal with your hands.

I wanted to post a post about the following but felt it was not in good taste but now the subject has been brought up.
I get the Bicycle Retailer and industry news magazine mailing. I always look in the back at the job classified ads anyways this last month they added a new feature to the classifieds a personal section. I was really surprised by the amount ao women posting looking for guys, But this one was the best I have to share it with you guys gals who ever maybe its just me but I was rolling laughing here goes:

WOMAN WRENCH
I'm a young 5'4" wrench who loves to ride-road or dirt. Educated, articulated. Seeks meaningful e-mail correspondence before reaming any headtubes.

That one will get you locked up for sure.

I enjoy the honest, direct approach: "Baby, I've got a box of condoms, wanna burn a few?"

Before getting married (many years ago) I was three sheets one night in a bar. I saw a real looker (from behind, as I had not seen her face yet) I approached her from behind, wrapped my arms gently around her waist, and said "Hope you don't mind, I couldn't resist" She laughed with the most lovely lilting voice, turned a bit, and at that point I could see.... she was indeed gorgeous. I was too drunk to know she was 'out of my league'. We ended up dating for a time...mmmm memories....

No one wants to ride in the rain! Pack your bike, put on your best dress, and get yourself on a plane bound for San Jose. The riding is great and there's no rain here. It's at least 80 degrees right now. Plus, the man/woman ratio is heavily skewed towards men! You should have no trouble out here. But look me up first!

Men like women who ride bikes, only if they are faster and stronger than them. If the woman ends up stronger than the man, he starts to suffer problems. In technical terms, I believe it is called "Shrinkage."

Nothing makes a woman sexier than competence. Which does not, unfortunately, make all competent women sexy, because they have to be fun and tolerant and warm and stuff, too, but if they have a little going for them, nothing finishes the package like competence.
That's interesting....Fredrico

Well, you may be dropping potential significant others on the hills, or riding with the wrong men, or very competitive--which eliminates all but the most masochistic wimps.

May 21, 2003 12:53 PM
The one thing that realio, trulio makes anyone sexy is being yourself. Women get that so wrong about men. DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT change your behavior to suit some idea of what you think men want. It's not only wrong for you, it's a bad strategy.
Now, changing your attitude is a little different story. I don't know what you mean by being "too competitive," but the selfsame self-absorbed b/s that can translate as competitiveness is no more appealing in women than it is in men.
If you're having fun, and open to someone else's sharing your fun, it'll happen. I promise.

I've been out of the hunt a while, but when I was in it, women definitely looked hotter riding, running, or playing tennis. I found this, unlike dancing, had little or no correlation to actual heat. If you want real heat, look for uninhibited, even if they're untalented, dancers!

How can we become more approachable to our cycling brothers?

Interestingly enough, I'm pretty reserved in day-to-day life. But if I'm on a bike, and you're on a bike, and you say hi to me, then I'm very outgoing. Yak yak yak...

Some (not all!!) guy cyclists do tend to be a little self-absorbed. Once I ran into a group having lunch at a gas station. They were doing the same century loop I was, but in the opposite direction (it was a club ride...) I said hi as I walked in and totally got the hairy eyeball. I mean, another cyclist is kinda hard to ignore in Patterson frickin' California....

Afterwards a couple of Euro randonneur(of course)dudes came up and said hi. The other guys were just...oblivious or shy or something.

May 21, 2003 1:28 PM
basically this solitary, wind and pulse pounding in the ears ("what did you say?"), pain-inducing, gear-oriented, athletic without being athletic, geeky thing. Cipo notwithstanding.
I wouldn't do a damned thing to be more attractive to your cycling brothers. Why ruin yourself for . . . for what?
If you still want to seek love and happiness among these unfortunate souls, the rules are simple. Smile. Be yourself. Speak when spoken to (or speak first, as the mood strikes), remember that to be interested is to be interesting, etc., but also remember that you are just not going to get through to some of the geeks, because they have found a sport and a community that allows them to be the sort of shy, awkward people that they are.
BTW, I consider myself a pretty normal, attractive enough guy but with a serious, who-cares-what-they-think-of-me bike geek streak. Thank god I'm married.
Oh, and BTW part deux, many of the women who ride are equally geeky (present company always excepted). With all that geekiness going on, it's a wonder there's any mating going on at all.

That's the problem! I need to find slower rides. Who can talk? Generally, I'm gasping for air trying to keep up. Seriously, I don't always like to talk when I'm riding. I use it as my down time to unplug from the world. Honestly, nothing can be more irritating than having someone constantly chattering in your ear when you just want to chill.

well consider this before you pine away for a girl to ride into the sunset with. If you both follow the traditional American marriage plan and have 2.4 children, and 1.5 jobs, who'll stay home with the youngun's while you and your sweetie are doing that 4 hour ride in the hills??

Maybe you'd be better off with what I've got, a mostly understanding wife who stays home while ride in the wee morning hours before tee ball and the inevitable set of family tasks.

just another point of view from a still young , married guy with 1 job, 1 wife, and 2 boys.
Well, since I'm neither...Charlie Amerique
May 21, 2003 7:47 PM
...pining away nor planning on the "traditional American marriage plan", I think I'll live with what I have now.

I already have a 10 year old, and I've had a hell of a lot more than 1.5 jobs (assuming you are speakign about "at a time"). As for staying home with the young ones, that sounds a lot like the kind of choice my ex thought had to be made. She didn't want to be the one to stay home, but she didn't want to work either.. so I got to do both.

Lucky for me I was more than willing and able to do both (with the help of my family). Now, when I have other children, they'll have a big sister to help as well as my extended family and friends. On top of that Annie and I will be able to ride alone or with friends while the other is home with the kids.
Sounds a lot less selfish than having one person do all the child rearing, eh?
