One of our coming stories will focus on the dangers that pregnant women might face if they decide to keep riding their bikes, in spite of their pregnancy.
In order to improve our story, we would like to hear your personal experiences, so that you could become part of our story.
Have you kept riding your bike during your pregnancy? What kind of precautions did you adopt?
Are you pregnant right now? What have you decided: lock your bike on the storage or keep it ready for your every day?

8Feb11, 8.34pm: This afternoon, I sent a message to a couple of friends that have been helping Cycling London Online on the hard task of bringing you quality content.
Since we weren’t having any replies to the challenge we published yesterday, I asked them if they could help us promote it through their own Twitter accounts.
In a matter of two hours, other Twitter users (such as @Chrishowejones, @amsterdamized and @MartinAnscombe) were already re-tweeting our message. Around 7pm, six pregnant women from different parts of the country had already sent me an e-mail, offering their help on this story.
Thank you all for the support. It means a lot!
Just a final note: I think this proves my point when I say that social networks can indeed be an extremely useful tool for journalists… For the first time, my sources are involved on the process of news production. And, to be honest, it feels great! Thank you!
