“You Go, Girl”

I see you. I got your back.

Here’s my complete You Go, Girl package of free offerings, designed to welcome you more fully into our shared public space (where women and girls are currently underrepresented). If you are a city leader, see the two posts 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:

1st-Ever Economic Impact Report — and It’s a Significant Under-Estimate!

7 Low-Hanging Fruit Actions Cities Can Take

I have created these proprietary assets pro bono as a League of American Bicyclists Cycling Instructor (#5382), PeopleForBikes Ambassador, the first Metro Atlanta Bicycle Mayor, 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.

You go, girl. You got this.

Inspiring profiles of people making it more inclusive to ride bikes

Welcoming routes around Metro Atlanta

2 bike classes — “Balance and Pedal”, and “Basic Bike Skills” — offered 4 convenient ways (TikTok, text, pdf, and in-person) 

Seniors-on-Trikes recommendations (especially helpful if your city is considering starting a class)

Weekly Substack newsletter (designed to offer additional support for skills taught in the classes, running for just 7 weeks in Fall 2021 — sign up now!)

All from the lived-and learned-experience of women and teen girls

Trust the journey,

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.)
