On Wednesday night, we held the first Women Bike webinar on “How to Start and Sustain a Women’s Bike Club” and, wow, what a success.
With more than 150 registrants, the topic clearly resonated, and our three panelists — Liz Jose of WEBikeNYC, Veronica Davis of Black Women Bike DC and Sarai Snyder of Girl Bike Love — shared tips and advice that were both insightful and actionable.
If you missed the webinar live, don’t worry! For you visual learners, we recorded the event and, for folks who like words on paper, we created a written Tip Sheet incorporating the notes and slides into a mini-resource.
Ready for more? We’ve already scheduled our next webinar on February 27 at 2 p.m. Eastern — Women Mean Business: The Economic Impact of Women Bicyclists.
In preparation for the Women Mean Business theme for the National Women’s Bicycling Forum (and the Bicycling Means Business theme at the 2013 National Bike Summit), we’ll explore the results of the American Bicyclist Study with authors Elliot Gluskin and Jay Townley — and understand the tremendous economic impact of women on the current, and more importantly, the future of the bicycle movement.
