In North American cities, men outnumber women on bikes by a ratio of over three-to-one. April Streeter aims to inspire more women to ride bicycles with this handy, pocket-sized guide to city cycling. Streeter provides practical tips for city cycling and informative opinions on travel etiquette. While the sections on buying bikes and accessories missed some key brands, Streeter’s book provides a starting point for further investigation at your local shop. The historical profiles of trailblazing female cyclists show just how influential the bicycle has been, and can still be, on the lives of women. Streeter’s handbook is a fun read that can make anyone feel confident and ready to ride.
