Cyclists Are Sexy: Oft-overlooked Benefits of Bicycles (35 Photos)
Commuting to work and getting around town on two pedal-powered wheels can save money, reduce your impact on the environment, and improve the overall health and well-being of a city. We cover those benefits of cycling here on Gas 2, but there’s one benefit that’s usually overlooked around here: cyclists are sexy.
That’s right, kids- the über-green bicycle you’re riding to work can help you burn calories, build and tone muscles in your calves, thighs, and butt, and generally help get you outside. On top of that, the endorphins you build up with exercise gives your face a healthy glow (a pinkish hue, if you will) and can genuinely make you feel better throughout the day. Any or all of which sound like a fantastic excuse to post a bunch of pictures of good-looking women in skimpy clothes with a loose association to bikes.
So, sit back and enjoy this photo-gallery of attractive cyclists. Or, you know, jump straight to the comments and accuse me of propagating a standard of beauty that’s detrimental to something or other and call me awful names. Up to you, dear readers- and, really, I apologize for the lack of men in this post. If there’s enough demand, we’ll do a dedicated “hot biker men” post down the road. Promise. Enjoy!
