Unless there’s been some serious techtonic shifts recently Afghanistan is not located in the Middle East.

The sad reality is these women will probably die for their defiance of a babaric culture they live in.
Next time you support any form of the liberals Islamic capitulation agenda, remember that is reality.

Awesome! I wish these riders much luck in changing attitudes about women and cycling, everywhere.
