You belong in this #BikeBloom
I hear you. I see you. I feel you. And I got your back. See here for free Pedal Power with Pattie classes, designed specifically with female-identifying adults and teens in mind. See below for additional helpful links for all.
I have created these significant proprietary assets pro bono as a League of American Bicyclists Cycling Instructor (#5382), PeopleForBikes Ambassador, the first Metro Atlanta Bicycle Mayor as part of a global consortium with the Amsterdam-base social enterprise BYCS, and the author of Traveling at the Speed of Bike (book and blog). I’d love to hear about your journey if any of this is helpful (or perhaps even transformative!) for you.
If you are a city leader in the USA, see the first two links below re: why you are leaving money on the table if your city is not welcoming for women on bikes, and what you can do about it right now, today. Or see here for the quick summary:

Thank you for your support. 100% of proceeds from the sale of my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike, as well as my original-art Artsy Bike Face Mask, are used to help more women and girls ride bikes.
Also, there’s a bib! You can order it here. See an adorable baby modeling it here. (Reminder: Kids don’t wait. They grow up. You can’t “feel like a kid again” when you ride a bike for the rest of your life . . . if you didn’t ride a bike as a kid. The time for change is now.)
