There’s this Dutch cyclist named Puck Moonen*, and apparently she’s been named the World’s Most Beautiful Cyclist or something, so I think it behooves us to look her over, so to speak.

I don’t know what standards of beauty apply in the female cycling world, but there’s no denying she’s rather fetching.

And I’m pretty sure that she would have more than enough energy and stamina for just about any activity you’d want to engage in with her.

*In Dutch, her name would be pronounced “Pook Moo-uh-nen” (with both the shortened “oo” sounds pronouced like “book”), if my memory of the lingo serves me correctly.
