Black Women Bike DC Inspires at National Bike Summit

It all started with a short hashtag: #blackwomenbikeDC

From there, Veronica Davis helped form an organization to bring together black women in Washington, D.C., interested in cycling. That spurred a Facebook page, and then a Washington Post article. Now @BWBDC has more than 750 members and is at the center of a movement to empower black women to get on bicycles.

Veronica Davis gave an inspiring talk yesterday in one of four rapid-fire sessions yesterday at the 2013 National Bike Summit. Watch each of the their presentations below:

Creating an Advocacy Organization: Veronica O. Davis, P.E., co-founder, Black Women Bike DC

Marketing to the Culture Class: Active Healthy, Affluent and Aware Consumers: Howard Chang, President, and CEO, Top Drawer Creative

Driving Fast and Riding Slow: The Real Risks of Not Bicycling: Tom Bowden, Chair, BikeVirginia
