We absolutely love girls who ride bikes, hell who doesn’t? And what better way to wake up in the morning than to be greeted by a nice looking lady getting all gnarly on her two-wheeled pleasure maker? You see, a while back, we started posting this sort of stuff each day at the rise of dawn over on the blue page and it’s been really popular, but we see room for improvement. What we’ve noticed is that there’s a great shortage of photos on the interwebs featuring girls who actually ride their bikes rather than just posing next to them. So we are officially launching out very own hashtag project conveniently titled #realgirlsthatride to help solve that problem.
And this is where you come in. We are leaving it up to our readers (like Victoria seen below) to submit photos of themselves getting rad on their rides, and tell us your story. Victoria runs a page called Arkansas Heels on Wheels that promotes women’s cycling as much as possible to make Arkansas more bike friendly and to promote health. She also thinks “Women who cycle are sexy!” and so do we, go figure…
Here’s Heather in Massachusetts:

Yes, we see great things on the horizon with the Real Girls That Ride project. And if you’re worried we are going to discontinue posting the high heeled hotties, or the highly educational babe photos, don’t be. We’ll keep featuring plenty of the “norm” but we also find real beauty in highlighting women who use their bikes as a tool, and not just an accessory.by
