|Why, no, I didn't get around to air brushing the wrinkles off my forehead!|
|Obsessed with the same shoes and the perfect pair of jeans for the last 30 years.|
|The "boyfriend" jean. Genius! I don't do "skinny" but some 40+ ladies carry them off very well.|
|Yes, that is a Hello Kitty t-shirt. So, what?!|

I'll close with the shameful admission that I don't feature that many over 40 cycling women in this space. It's not for a lack of trying, however. I just don't know that many cycling women in that age group. Most of the cycling women that I run into are complete strangers, usually students at NAU. That said, when I do see older women cycling around town, they possess that determined look of one who is going some place, confident on two wheels. My fear of being arrested as the crazy, bicycle-riding, stalker lady inhibits me from pursuing them for a photo but I'll try to do better. If you happen to live in Flagstaff, are 40+ and would like to share your thoughts about being a female transportation cyclist "of a certain age", please drop me a line. I'd love to offer you a forum for your experiences.
