Women believe guys who ride fast and finish in the top of bike races and bike rides are better looking. It’s that simple.
No, I am not making it up, ask Erik Postma who recently published a paper titled, “A relationship between attractiveness and performance in professional cyclists.” Yea I took some liberty in interpreting the results given the study focused on professional cyclists. However, Erik studies biological evolution and explains how the results could be interpreted. It makes sense, evolution dictates that women seek strong males for all the reasons of survival and good genes.
While we might live in modern homes, manufactured landscapes and technology that can almost now think like a human, the fact remains we are a product of millions of years of evolution where our genes simply have say. And hey, riding fast is good for your health anyway. Here’s to those that ride in the front of the peloton!
