Women Bike PHL
Women Bike PHL aims to shrink the gender gap in bicycling, making riding a bicycle more fun and feasible for Philadelphia women of all ages and backgrounds. In Philadelphia, only one third of all bicyclists are women. This is better than the national average, but still shows that barriers exist to women bicycling. The hub of the program is the extremely vibrant Women Bike PHL Facebook group. Women Bike PHL also holds rides, classes, and social events throughout the year, aimed at women bicyclists of all ability levels. Some of the events are just for women, while others are open to everyone.
