Cycle passion calander – isn't this a bit.. ermmm
I might be weird, but is this calander a bit anachronistic?Posted 6 years ago
To be honest I’m all for the images were the female cyclist looks fantastic just on her bike or what ever, but the high heels and under wear whilst pushing a bike just seems a bit weird and wrong. This level of objectification of an individual seems terribly dated and quite off. Or is it me?tragically1969Member
It would be better if these athletes were known for their skills and ability on a bike rather than a tacky glamour calendar. Liz Hutch and Willow Koeber look awesome when in full flight over a rock garden.
Erm, Liz HATCH is a road rider, if she is in full flight down a rock garden then something has gone horribly wrong……Posted 6 years agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
I question more who actually buys the calendar? I guess I can picture one hanging up in a workshop in a bike shop but that seems a limited market. If you want to look at fit women there are cheaper and better options :p All pretty harmless though IMO, yes it’s objectifying but it’s obviously something they wanted to do rather than were forced to do.Posted 6 years agoMrSalmonMember

They are, aren’t they? That’s why they’re in it. And I don’t think their riding careers are in any danger of being overshadowed by their modelling careers.
Still, I do take the OP’s point, it is a bit dated.Posted 6 years ago
