Women and cycling
In 2009, women accounted for just 24 percent of all U.S. bike trips, according to the National Household Travel Survey. The League of American Bicyclists "Women Bike" program's goal is to get more women on bikes as riders, advocates, and leaders. The program unites nationwide efforts and acts as a hub of best practices and information on women's bicycling. The program recently released a report that discusses the health benefits of bicycling and ways to increase women's participation in the sport.
