Free Webinar: Empowering Women to Bicycle for Transportation

One of the most talked-about events at last week’s National Bike Summit was the Women Cycling Forum, an event sponsored and moderated by the League.

More than 200 attendees packed the house to hear a wide-ranging conversation on how to close the gender gap in American cycling. Hosted by the Alliance for Biking & Walking and the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, the Forum included a keynote address from Sue Macy, author of Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom and a diverse panel discussion featuring women from bicycle advocacy, engineering, and industry.
