ladybikeLast year, the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals jumpstarted a key discussion within the movement with its Women Cycling Project.

In early 2010, more than 11,000 American women responded to APBP's public survey, which gathered information on how much women ride, the barriers that keep them from pedaling and much more. Though the effort wasn't a scientific survey, it yielded plenty of interesting and actionable data, including thousands of responses to open-ended questions like, "What would cause you to start or increase your cycling?” 

This week, APBP will release new insight and continue to explore this important topic with a free webinar: "Women Can Change the World Through Cycling."

According to APBP: "This webinar builds on last year's session, "Writing Women Back into Bicycling." Five speakers offer compelling insights about cycling projects run by inspiring women, illuminate what women told APBP they want in a cycling environment, and suggest best practices to help you make a difference in your community. Don't miss the stories of some of the wonderful women leading the cycling movement, and results of APBP's 2010 survey on Women Cycling. APBP encourages individuals to gather colleagues and friends together to watch the webinar and discuss and plan afterwards. Build your team. Check out the Women Cycling Project here."
