ICYMI: this is what's awesome in the bike world from over the weekend and last 7-10 days.
If I missed something or someone, give me a heads up! Link us to the awesomeness in your comment.
"Aren't you the fat chick that got kicked out of Canyons?", "You're just mad because you're ugly" and "The only people who have a problem with it [the commercial sexuality within biking] are the obese and ass-faced chicks" are all things that have been said to me because of my stance on the issues surrounding #AbilityOverAesthetics. And I laugh. Why? Because fuck those guys, that's why -- they'll never have the opportunity to meet me to find out who the person on the other end of the screen is, and that makes me giggle. It's not about what I look like anymore than it's about what other women do -- none of that has anything to do with our skills or abilities around sports and cycling... Just because we are able to exploit our sport doesn't mean we should. 💥 #crushlife #hatersgonnahate #tatersgonnapotateA photo posted by Amanda Batty (@abattycakes) on
