    Depends what "Sarah" looks like.
    If she's a looker I'll pop round and slip her one while he's at the sportive.

    I'd rather go shopping with the girls than enter a pretend bike race.

    They were never going to get away with that, nice try though :lol: I don't know if there's anything left that can be considered male only, flippin' wimmin are everywhere :wink:

    Proof that there are humourless bints everywhere. Mind you it is censored advertising - aiming the ad at 'affluent' males in Stockton, they're not going to get many takers :lol:

    So a male-orientated leaflet is sexist but a women only club isn't. Oh hang on, it's because men are evil :roll:

    Successful viral marketing campaign?

    Note the women front and centre on their home page.

    I wouldn't have known about the event if it wasn't for the "accidentally sexist" viral ad.

    BTW, Sarah's the one in the mismatched animal print!
    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

    would agree if a PR company was involved, but if it was just the local council...........

    'Mrs Pankhurst' work is not yet done'

    Does that mean that females will be throwing themselves under the wheels of male cyclists taking part?

    Notice how so many TV ads portray men as stupid and Women the clever ones?

    Double standards.

    BTW RDW, I know a couple of fellas who target sportives to race because "It's like a 3rd or 4th cat event". I tried to tell them they were making tw4ts of themselves but they didn't listen. What would you have to say to them?
