‘The number one reason that women don't ride bikes is... CARS! Not that cars are so much easier, but rather, women said they don't feel safe sharing the road with them. A full 80% of respondents didn't, according to our recently completed Low-Income Women and Bicycling Survey Project. Also, 63% said they would consider riding a bicycle if there were bike lanes in their neighborhood.'
CARS…This was my excuse for the longest time. It took a lot of desire on my part to get over it (the fear). I did. Now I can’t encourage women enough to ask themselves just what is it that keeps them from riding a bicycle more often?
