I'm a cycling fanatic (more long distance riding) and I cycle a lot with my male partner and other men. I'm lucky that the guys I bike with are also not into speed stuff and just go at an 11-12 mph average pace, because i would NOT be able to remotely hang if they decided to race. our body mechanics are completely different and they have 100% of the advantages. As someone who has been in semi-competitive swimming and non-competitive cycling, these articles just feel like repeat slaps in the face. So disheartening.
