Happy International Women’s Day!
While we should think about gender disparities in transportation access every day, now is a great time to assess where we are and where we should be. And when it comes to biking, where we are isn’t great: only 28 percent of bike commuters in the United States are women.
These reasons reveal ways to help women bike more and enjoy the plethora of benefits from biking for transportation.
So this Women’s Day, we challenge you to think of ways to make biking easier for women in your community. It can be as simple as adding a bike rack to the company parking garage.
