Making bicycling more accessible for women in Pittsburgh
BikePGH’s Women & Biking Program works to encourage more women of all ages and backgrounds to incorporate bicycling into their lives. By opening the discussion about women’s lived experiences and challenges, we can assess how to better provide support and resources for women who want to ride bicycles in Pittsburgh.
The 3rd Annual Women & Bike Forum is coming!
Join us on Saturday April 2nd 2016 at the William Pitt Union on Pitt’s campus for a day of speakers and workshops, where you can learn everything from the mechanics of your bike and how to ride it safely to being an advocate for better biking and walking.
For a better forum, we need your help! We have a “To Be Determined Workshop” waiting for you to design. What do you want to see? – Click here to submit a suggestion
