Hans wanted multiple choice but the poll module doesn't support that at the mo. Sticking out tongue

Just create different combinations as options... then it would be a 'real' poll... Evil

that you look at the bikes rather than the BOYS riding them option? Sadly that has happened to me, much to the horror of my non-riding girlfriends who look at the blokes...I just comment on the bikes...true true true!
too many options that fit to pick just one - Rob we need multiple choice for that one!!!

This ones for you... Eye-wink

Top Reasons to date a female cyclist


1. We go as fast or slow as you need to.

2. If need be, we've got 15 different types of lube at home!

3. We're bike tourers, not sprinters.

4. We do quite well in the drops, thanks!

5. It's not necessarily the frequency of the rides, but each ride's quality.

6. We know it's not about the size of your tubes.

7. You call 'em pigtails, we call 'em handlebars.

8. We can wear white and red bike shorts without "advertising"

9. Plateaus aren't just flat-topped hills to us!

10. Our steel is real!

11. We don't try to one-up our buddies on ride totals

12. We can hit the top tube mountain biking without dramatically altering our sex lives

13. Jersey cleavage.

14. Accessories are half the fun!

15. Pumps are bicycle-only accessories for us.

16. We take special care to avoid carpal tunnel.

17. The "How do I look in these jeans?" question is obsolete.

18. If we haven't come that way before, it might not just be the cobblestones!
