According to an August 6th League of American Bicyclists release, “As the summer riding season peaks, the League has released a first-of-its-kind report showcasing a trend seen on streets nationwide: Women are changing the face of bicycling, and bicycling is transforming the lives of women.
“‘Women on a Roll: Benchmarking Women’s Bicycling in the United States–and Five Keys to Get More Women on Wheels’ (http://bit.ly/13zbxFZ)–a product of the League’s Women Bike program–compiles more than 100 original and trusted sources of data to showcase the growth and potential of female bicyclists in the United States. It also suggests five key focus areas–the 5 Cs–to increase women’s ridership: comfort, convenience, consumer products, confidence, and community.”
