From designer rain capes to handmade steel bikes, creative entrepreneurs are paving the way — even rolling out the red carpet — to get more women riding.
With a theme of Women Mean Business, we wanted to showcase as many of these female leaders as we could at the National Women’s Bicycling Forum. We put out a call for applications and were absolutely inspired by the diverse array of vendors who responded and delighted to announce the lineup for our Women Bike Pop-up Shop.
Not only will you walk away from the Forum with best practices, new contacts and a wealth of inspiration to empower women in your community. With the fashionable and functional items for sale, you’ll probably need a little extra room in your suitcase, too.
