Women Lead In Innovative Advocacy

A few weeks ago, I was meeting friends for Happy Hour and, as I pulled up on my bike, they were already engrossed in conversation.

Now, the online edition is up, expanding the list to 14 innovators — and more women made the cut, including Melody Moody of Bike Walk Mississippi, Nelle Pierson of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and the Women Bike program itself!
