Mar 29: Women and Biking Forum

Bike Pittsburgh and Chatham University have partnered to host the city's first ever Women's Biking Forum in Pittsburgh!  

A day of facilitated workshops, discussion groups, and keynote speakers aims to provide a space where women can talk about their experiences and gain knowledge and resources. Women of all ages and skill levels will find workshops directed towards basic bike adjustments, upkeep, the fundamentals of riding, and how to choose appropriate layers for all-weather riding. Discussion groups will focus on riding with children and families, navigating bike shops, safety, incorporating bicycling into your life, and experiences (the good, the bad, the silly).
Bike Pittsburgh’s Women and Biking Program works to encourage more women to incorporate bicycling into life in a way that feels comfortable to them.  By opening the discussion about women’s lived experiences and challenges, we can assess how to better provide support and resources for women who want to ride bicycles in Pittsburgh. 
Sliding scale registration can be done online -- space is limited;  please RSVP here.  Build community with other women and enjoy a free catered lunch provided by Marty's Market and Highmark!
