Wow wee! There’s a documentary with almost the same name as this blog. Beauty And The Bike sets out to discover why some girls in cycling-friendly countries continue to cycle into adulthood, while others give it up once they become teenagers.
I’ve to say, in Singapore, I’ve hardly ever seen any women commuting by bike. Sports cyclists, rare, but there still are. Commuters, nada. Maybe once. I think it’s a combination of our humid weather plus infrastructure that doesn’t support cycling as a form of transport. Watch the short film to find out more about the girls in England and Germany.
