Oh my stars...just look what my clever beau found for me online! I know how much ya'll love wearing those weird, funky bicycle helmets that are so the rage these days...not! Well look at this, my darlings.  I bought one and I am betting if their are helmet laws in your neck of the woods, you will buy one too!  Mine is a Hollywood in Green with yellow flowers.

Ah...there is a similar shop near Boston called 'Toys In Babeland'...I think that would be an excellent start.

No darling, I was speaking of the local "ladies toy shop" that sells things to deal with our occasional bouts of "hysteria'. we have pleanty of REAL bike shops here, but they tend to cater to the boys.

It's up to you...although a REAL bike shop, if you have one, would be better...the toy shops often sell crap, like a drug dealer giving away free samples to get you hooked on crap, and the bike shop is your REAL support business.

I HATE WallyWorld and their ilk.....

I love this idea, Mr. Grimm.  Perhaps I can get my local toy shop to sponsor?

Comment by Ryan Grimm on July 3, 2014 at 3:20am

Contact local riding groups/clubs.  Se if you can organize a charity/benefit ride.  Make it female-centric, such as for Hysteria Relief or something equally beneficial.

Be an example in period gear on weekends...a good example is always an excellent thing.

How can I get more ladies back on bicycles???
