Getting More Women on Their Bikes
"To create sustainable, healthy and liveable cities, we need to increase the number of cyclists on our streets, and that means getting more women on their bikes. In San Francisco, only 29% of cyclists are women; in Barcelona, there are three male cyclists for every female cyclist; in London, 37% of cyclists are female."
Ways to increase the number of women cycling in cities is to ensure protected cycle lanes, secure cycle parking, better data concerning women's transport choices and safety considerations, representation, social events and workshops.
