Women’s cycling jersey inadequacy rage, Oct 2013

There follows what I am sure will be the first of many rants.  I do love a good rant… this particular example was induced by the simple act of trying to buy some new kit

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH WHY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DOES WOMEN’S CYCLING KIT NEVER HAVE ANY FUCKING POCKETS?

I mean, what is it that men need to carry while out cycling that we don’t? Maybe because we’re only little we don’t need to eat? Do our boobs magically fill with helium as we ride, lifting us above the road so we never puncture, rendering the need to carry spare tubes obsolete? Or are women who cycle such inhuman beings that we have developed the ability to communicate telepathically and therefore have no need to carry mobile phones for safety?

OH YES, ASSOS, AND I ALWAYS WEAR FUCKING EYELINER WHEN I GO RIDING…

    A lot of women’s jerseys in LBS’s where I live, have back pockets. I’m just wondering what manufacturer are you looking which don’t have the back pockets.

  2. To be honest I was exaggerating for comic effect 😉 Most of the women’s jerseys I have seen have 2 smallish pockets, most men’s ones have 3 slightly bigger ones.

    I only have a Kleenex and occasionally my pocket camera. When I cycle into an indoor garage, etc. I might have my gloves in there for 5 min. when taking elevator inside a building.

    I don’t carry my pump, wallet, banana or granola bar in my pockets. I have a pannier… I really am car-free for several decades…..cycling is part of my daily lifestyle except for snowy/icy winter days.

    So I am waay more cycling oriented than just because I cycle a hybrid bike or folding bike even though I don’t race.
