How do I get my chubby-turning-fat girlfriend on a bike? She's a sassy Hispanic Guatamalan who doesnt like being told what to do and hates exercise. Someone send me a miracle

Don't do it. Girlfriends and cycling do not mix. They want to talk about their FEELINGS the whole time and if you're not constantly acknowledging them and validating them and riding side by side and causing a hazard, it's emotional terrorism and you'll have to stop after 5 minutes and have a crisis meltdown prevention session, then you'll return home and watch a movie instead.

This. If you wanted a cycling gf you should have gotten one from the start.

Pierce Brosnan is very handsome. If I looked like that I'd be having sex with 18 year olds every single day and literally nobody could do anything about it because I wouldn't care if they talked to the press, I would be completely open about it.
>>
>>1314878
I would only suggest it mildly and then leave it at that. I’ve tried to convert too many past gf’s which in hindsight was foolish and immature. If cycling is that make-or-break for you, find a new gf, or just accept that you and your partner don’t need to have all the exact same hobbies.

Also, be careful what you wish for. Once you get a gf that does cycle, good luck explaining to her that you don’t want to ride with her sometimes. Some women are understanding of this, most will not be.

The ideal gf is one that doesn't care about how much time you spend training, if you wake up at 4am to go training, if you spend all of your money on bikes, if you spend all weekend with other dudes on bikes, and is always there when you come home. There's only one option.

This is actually the closest hope you have to turning her into cycle GF. Ride enough that she becomes jealous about the time your spending with the bike instead of her, then invite her to ride with you. Probably won't work but likely best shot.

I made the mistake of going out for a long ride today ("nice" days are the worst) and I got stuck behind a couple doing what you described. The guy was on a nice crabin bike and fully decked out in his rapha, the GF was on an entry level alu frame, with platform pedals. He was following close behind and they were going probably 11mph. He was doing a great job of concealing his suffering.

I've had chicks get jelly and mad because I was enjoying a meal too much. Had one throw a tantrum in a restaurant because she was jealous of how much I was enjoying a fucking plate of tagliatelle with bolognese sauce.

Open up that thread that is always on /n/ with pictures of cycling girls and look through the pictures *nonchalantly* making sure that she sees what you're doing. When she notices and gets pissed, just say "oh sorry I was just scrolling through". Also, whenever you pass a girl on a bike make sure to obviously stare. Hopefully this will subconsciously prime her to get into cycling. It might also make her break up with you. Win-win.
>>
Get her a bike with a basket. Bitches love baskets. Especially if they can use it to carry picnic goods.

Girls are so gay

This, you do NOT want the wrath of Pierce!

Here's your two-step plan to fix your problem:
>1. Dump girlfriend
>2. Get new, non-hamplanet, non-lazy, pro-cycling girlfriend
There, was that so hard?
>>
>>1314878
have a conversation about being fit with her. tell her that it is important for you that you both stay in shape. that is a perfectly allright thing to tell her.

Could you break down point 2 for me? I couldn't find any tutorial online, even on Sheldon Brown's page.

I think it's the same as the unwritten predicate to the first point, except you having better standards. But that's just my guess because I dunno how to get to zero.

You can't change a person, you'll have to show her what you like in biking and hope she enjoy the ride together with you.
>>
Get her on a train instead.

>>1314878

Get another GF

Sarcasm ignored.
>expecting other people to change/adapt to what *you* want them to be
That's adolescent thinking and that's not how the world works.
You don't like how she conducts her life? All you can do is express your opinion about it in non-threatening, non-judgemental terms, and see what happens. Nothing lasts forever. You either accept another human beings' decisions as they pertain to themselves, or you don't and move on. If she prefers to be a hamplanet and you don't like that, then you leave her and find someone you '''approve''' of. You can make the argument of """I'm trying to help her be healthier""" or whatever but that doesn't fly, it's her *personal decision*, and if you don't like that then tough shit.
Consider this: how would you like it if she started badgering *you* to stop biking and sell your bike(s), spend more time with her instead? You wouldn't like that at all would you? You wouldn't like someone trying to dictate to you how you can live your life, it wouldn't be fair. How can you do that to someone else?
Stop treating your alleged 'girlfriend' like an unanimate object or a 'pet'. That's basically what you're doing.

It sounds more like it's more about her health than about the actual cycling, but I could be wrong. Either way, there's no way of forcing her to get any exercise at all.

Pretty much all you can do. Either that or bounce.
