Marion Rousse, Cyclepassion 2012

It’s that time of the year again when the folks over at Cyclepassion manage to combine my two favourite things, women and bikes, into one lovely product. The 2012 Cyclepassion calendar is now out.

This year they’ve gone for a vintage polaroid style theme on some of their marketing, no doubt inspired by the success of photo services like Instagram. However, the shots in the calendar itself remain as elegant as ever, and not at all contrived.

I mean, a photo of Marion Rousse in high heels and lycra and a scrap of cardboard with the legend Alpe D’Huez on it could never be called contrived could it? And Maja Wloszczowska in seriously hot pants and coloured scarves astride her Scott cross country bike happens all the time; at least until I wake up.

You won’t hear any complaints from me though, I love fit women showing off their hard earned tan lines. Alas there’s no sign of Emily Batty in this year’s calendar and – if I were to split hairs – they could have got a bit more carbon in, but really. It’s marvellous!

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
