Interesting article on the BBC website today: Women athletes fear pressures over appearance
I know there aren't many of us mountain biking girls, but wondered if anyone else had experienced this, or worried about it?
I've been cycling a lot this year, and definitely noticed that my legs have got a lot bigger/musclier (is that even a word?!). And womens' clothing isn't exactly made for cyclists - I tried on some cropped jeans the other week and couldn't get the thigh bit of the jeans over my calves! My arms are definitely bigger compared to other girls' too, because of the mountain biking.
And what are guys' thoughts on this - are you put off by athletic/muscular women?
