Winners of the League of American Bicyclists Women Bike infographic contest highlight why women ride bikes.
With the goal of uncovering the power and potential of female bicyclists, the League of American Bicyclists released the Women on a Roll report in August 2013.
To help share the many exciting discoveries within the report, the League held a contest asking participants to create a shareable and interesting infographic.
The winning entry, by Paul Halupka and Alex Helbach from Chicago’s Active Transportation Alliance, highlights the many reasons why women ride bikes.
“Developing this infographic was a daunting task,” Halupka told the League. “The variety of data was overwhelming and the issue of gender equality in the world of bikes is a big deal to us personally, as well as relevant in Chicago and nationwide. Proper communication of these complex issues is key, so, for Alex and I, taking on this project not only felt like a big responsibility, but something we really wanted to do right. We feel pleased and lucky to be in a position to help the League do their awesome work!”
