BikePGH’s 8th Annual Women & Non-Binary Bike Summit
BikePGH held its 8th Annual Women & Non-binary Bike Summit presented by Dollar Bank on Saturday, June 26. This year’s Summit was a hybrid event featuring live Zoom sessions on breaking down gendered barriers to bicycling, bike advocacy, size inclusivity in the cycling community, and skill building activities to boost bicyclists’ confidence. The Summit kicked off with a Keynote speech by Ann Nguyen on using the power of bicycling to drive change in social justice, environmental justice and transportation infrastructure, and how to help people see themselves in cycling and be a voice when policies are being made.
This year’s Summit included expanded accessibility with pay-what-you-can registration, a hybrid event forma, an ice cream group ride, and in-person packet pickup. All Summit participants received a free copy of the Bike Girl Magic ebook and were entered to win prizes from Machines for Freedom, Superfit Hero, Po Campo, and Terry Bicycles.
