Belgian cycling race "Grope" poster

Grope poster, cyclist groping, Peter Sagan, sex assault
This is not good for cycling, a Belgian cycling race "the E3 Harelbeke" promoting sexual assault on woman. It was reported on Belga news.  The race will be held on March 27, 2015, they have released a poster with a hostess skirt blowing up while a cyclist hand is about to grab the bottom of the woman. It is quite similar to what Peter Sagan from Slovakia did at the Tour of Flanders in 2013 in which he groped a girl while on stage.

Belgian Institute for Equality said that the poster violates the anti-discrimination law which prohibits any behavior which is undesirable, hostile, offensive or humiliating on the grounds of sex.

If the PR team behind the E3 Harelbeke campaign wants controversy why not use a poster with a cyclist injecting steroids.

Check out a video from Global Cycling Network about the important things that you should bring for a long bike ride so that you are prepared for every eventuality.

Since you can't bring everything with you during a bike ride due to limited space of your cycling jersey pockets and saddlebag. Also, if you bring unnecessary stuff it will just add additional load. The video will talk about what you should bring and where to put it.

Important things to bring are two inner tubes, a puncture repair kit, multi tool, mobile phone in a waterproof bag, raincape, a mini pump, your wallet, and an ID with your emergency contact number.
