We already knew this at Cyclelicious, and Cycling Weekly in the UK has picked up on this as well -- women say cyclists are the most attractive males:
In a survey by the Cycle Show of women attending the Show, the fairer sex found fans of cycling the most attractive from a list of typically male sporting pursuits.
Cycling came out as the top choice of hobby for prospective partners with 36% of respondents voting in its favour; beating the number one male hobbies of football (17%) and rugby (14%).
The women questioned revealed that not only are they more happy for prospective partners to spend time cycling when not spending time with them, but also that they are equally positive about the idea of cycling as a romantic experience. 44% of those questioned chose a bike ride as their top first date activity. Football fans faired less well, with only 17% of respondents choosing a trip to the football as their ideal first date.
Cyclists were also frequently described as ‘kind', ‘considerate' and ‘intelligent' whereas the majority of women questioned felt that football fans were typically ‘aggressive', ‘selfish' and ‘proud.'
"44% of those questioned chose a bike ride as their top first date activity. Football fans faired less well, with only 17% of respondents choosing a trip to the football as their ideal first date."
That's not a fair comparison. Maybe more women simply prefer doing things to watching other people do things.
It also seems unfair to compare participants of one sport to spectators of another. That's like saying "Men who regularly go to the gym are sexier than men who regularly go to the bar, proving that women prefer running on a treadmill to enjoying a few drinks with their friends."
