Engaging and encouraging more women to ride bikes in Pittsburgh
Bike Pittsburgh’s Women and Biking Program works to encourage more women to incorporate bicycling into life in a way that feels comfortable to them. 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.
Let’s talk about what is needed for women of all ages and backgrounds to feel comfortable incorporating bicycling into their lives.
Attend Pittsburgh’s first Women & Biking Forum on Saturday, March 29th!
Presented by BikePGH and Chatham University
A day of facilitated workshops, discussion groups, and keynote speakers aims to provide a space where women can talk about their experiences and gain knowledge and resources. Women of all ages and skill levels will find workshops directed towards basic bike adjustments, upkeep, the fundamentals of riding, and how to choose appropriate layers for all-weather riding. Discussion groups will focus on riding with children and families, navigating bike shops, safety, incorporating bicycling into your life, and experiences (the good, the bad, the silly). Check out the forum schedule here!
Build community with other women and enjoy a free catered lunch!
* Women and trans identified people are welcome.
Thanks to Marty’s Market and Highmark for contributing lunch for all forum attendees!
