• To be honest i hope that the sample size stays at 8.

    Ok it's a small sample size, but working in a bike shop, i find that the women that i serve mention the fact that they are scared of the traffic, more than the men. whether or not this is just men being macho, i don't know, but i thought it has been known for a while that in general women, are more timid, therefore will not pull out in front of traffic, whereas men are more 'aggressive' so will jump lights, ride in the primary position.

    i find generally riding around that men are more aggressive riders than women.
