Research consistently shows that women shoulder more of the household responsibilities, including childcare and transportation. Whether running errands or shuttling kids, women often face additional considerations when it comes to getting around by bike.

So join us for our next Women Bike webinar — April 11, from 3:00 – 4:15 p.m. EDT — as we discuss “Getting More Moms and Families on Bikes.” We’ll explore how individual, advocacy and retailer leaders are addressing these unique but widespread considerations and helping to get more moms and families out riding.

Join us for a conversation with:

  • Megan Odett, founder of Kidical Mass DC and creator of the National Family Biking Survey
  • Martina Fahrner, co-founder of Clever Cycles in Portland, Ore., which was among the first bike shops in the U.S. to carry bikes specifically geared toward family transportation needs
