Stereotype or not, women, with their concerns about safety and protecting the children, need to feel safe if they are going to embrace cycling as their primary mode of transportation.
I do have hope.
Maybe it’s the red car syndrome, but I see more women on bikes every day. Women on bikes inspire other women to give it a try. Our friend Charlotte, just got a brand spankin’ new Radish from the Xtracycle sale. She mailed Tim right when the bike arrived to tell him how thrilled she is. Soon, the people of Anacortes will see one more woman with her cute kid on the back of her bike. Maybe others will join her?
Take a look at all of these family and female written biking blogs that have popped up in the past few years (I hope I didn’t miss any):
Trend? I hope not. I would love to believe we are all early adopters and that we are the future.
Happy Tuesday, I hope everyone has a good day.
