BIKETOWNpdx is hosting its first Women’s Bike Month - #womenwhobike - to celebrate the women in bike share and encourage more women to give this rapidly growing and popular transportation option a try. Currently, women only account for 34 percent of all bike share members nationally and BIKETOWNpdx wants to see that change.
From New York City to San Francisco and many cities in between, Women’s Bike Month will provide women with the resources and support to get them involved with bicycling. Throughout October, BIKETOWNpdx will be profiling female cyclists and partnering with BTA’s Women Bike program to make bike share available, at no cost, so you can ride to fun-filled events, such as women’s group rides and safety classes as well as a number of exciting promos. A complete list of events can be found here: http://bit.ly/WomenWhoBikePDX
Biking is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and exercise while getting around the city. And between the cooling weather and beautiful scenery, October is a wonderful time to start riding. Find a BIKETOWNpdx station near you.
