Muggs' number continue to increase, but the relative representation by the fairer sex has dwindled.
Road cycling is growing in popularity due to -
(i) more cycle groups which offer a diversity of ride speeds and ride-time schedules;
(ii) ride organisers know more low traffic ride routes to challenging places like Richmond, Kurrajong, Wisemans Ferry and Springwood; and
high performance bicycles are cheaper due to -
Alas, most of the increase in cyclists traffic is amongst the guys. Bank Teller has embarked on a marketing drive targeting the roots of Muggaccinos. He has recently approached the Public/Community Relations personnel at local hospitals.
The hospital personnel
that The Teller has spoken have been supportive and undertaken to display a Muggs' "NURSES WANTED"
colour poster on the hospital's community notice boards. Some hospitals
have also agreed to link the above URL to their employee newssheets. As
an example, RNSH, where the seeds
of Muggaccinos were germinated back in
the mid-90s, has six notice boards. Bank Teller posted 6 posters to
his contact at RNSH. Hopefully soon -
Shortly Bank Teller will approach sports clubs which have strong female participation ie Netball, Basketball and Hockey, as cycling is low impact cardio vascular training, and lots of fun.
If you know of other large employer groups, let Bank Teller know to also approach them, 'cause it is incumbent upon all of us to inform, particularly the femme ones, of the benefits of road cycling to the many non-denominational parishes at the tops of hills that Muggs' visit on Sunday mornings - when lots of motorists are still in their churches.
If you know of any medicos who are familiar with a hospital notice board at their place of employ, it is easy to print the Word version of "NURSES WANTED".
If you want to score brownie points with Muggs' Machos, read the
"WOMEN WANTED" and print the Word
version "WOMEN WANTED" on a colour
printer, and pin it on your office notice board. If you work in a high
rise, there is probably a notice board on every floor. Visit each floor as
though you own the joint. And if you can't find a notice board, ask
someone in an officious tone. If a floor doesn't have one, complain.

If you want a poster which relies on casual empiricism based on gender representation in ride packs, e-mail the htm file Cycling is a Sheila's sport and Print/Pin the Word version Cycling is a Sheila's sport on your office notice board.
Muggs' conducts a annual Cinderella Century ride to encourage more women to cycle on lower traffic routes on Sundays. Bank Teller will ensure Roses delivers a dozen, long stem, red roses are delivered within 3 days to each female who completes her maiden ride Cinderella Century from Nth Turra to Mt White 'n back - approx 100km.
