Women Bicycle Commuters
It has been my pleasure to know and ride with female bicycle commuters over the years. I enjoyed riding to work with DCC member Carolyn Winters on a regular basis for some time. Other female DCC bike commuters include Valerie Van Griethuysen, Kay Wert Minardi, and Clara Minardi.
The first annual Ohio Women’s Cycling Summit took place in Columbus in May.
Thus, I think this is an appropriate time to look at female bicycle commuting, It is time to explore the challenges, benefits, best practices, and lessons learned as women pedal to work and appointments. Since I would not qualify to discuss this topic, I request input from those who do.
To enjoy the benefits of group bicycle commuting, register for Pedal Pals by contacting Matt Lindsay of the Miami Regional Planning Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pedal Pals matches bike commuters going to the same place at the same time so they can ride together.
