The Team at Bike Station Aptos announces an all-gals event! Check it out and comment on how it goes. — Karen Kefauver
Tuesday, June 12 4 p.m.- 7 p.m.
Visit Bike Station Aptos for drinks, bike riding, shopping and schmoozing to celebrate the arrival of the Liv/giant women’s specific line to Aptos. Vendors will be on hand from Endura, the North Face, and others, and the Liv/Giant truck will carry the women’s demo fleet. Bring your friends, cyclists or non-cyclists, and get them out of the house for some hors d’oeuvres and girl time!
How is a Women’s Bike Different?
Many modifications (in addition to the geometry of the bike frame) can be made to a bicycle to make it more user-friendly for a woman:
• Saddle can be wider in the rear to accommodate a woman’s wider sit bones (“ischial tuberosities, if you want to be fancy!”) and perhaps have a cutout to prevent soft tissue damage.
• The weight and stiffness of the materials used can be altered to better suit a lighter-weight rider
• The bike can be painted in a different color scheme!
