Recently, the League of American Bicyclists 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 – 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.
“Increasingly, advocacy groups and industry leaders are recognizing the gender gap as a clear – and critical – limitation to growing the bike movement and the market,” said Carolyn Szczepanski, the League’s Director of Communications and Women Bike. “This report puts hard data behind that imperative – and reveals what’s working in getting more women on bikes and where there is clear opportunity to increase female leadership and participation.”
In conjunction with the League, Momentum Mag has put together an infographic that highlights 10 common myths about women cycling.
