June classes

I just added the June dates for Traveling at the Speed of Bike classes. I am particularly interested in encouraging women who desire to ride again (although all adults are welcome, as well as teens 13 and older with a release form signed by a parent), as women and girls are underrepresented on bikes in…

Yet another email to city hall

For what it’s worth — here’s yet another in a long line of emails I’ve sent to my local city hall over the past decade (some of which I’ve featured on my blogs as well) to advocate for safe access for all. I sent this to the mayor and all city councilors. See my book, Traveling…

Which state will be first?

Which state will be first? Stay tuned as I kick off my “What’s Great in 50 States” for women Traveling at the Speed of Bike. Note — I decided to do this because: (1) I don’t think anyone else is doing it; (2) The League of American Bicyclists (which serves as a terrific central resource…
