Helping women get on the road.
Choosing to ride a bike instead of driving a car for the last six years, April has been pedaling the city streets wondering… “Why do men outnumber women in city bike lanes by three to one?” Apparently there are many reasons, including fear of being hit by cars and helmet hair! In an attempt to invite more women to join the many people that are starting to commute on bikes, April recently published a handbook that offers concise and valuable information on how to make biking work with kids, groceries, pets, and various weather conditions. Her wonderful book also offers advice about finding the right bike and wardrobe, bike etiquette, and shares anecdotes from the history of women on bikes. But the book isn’t just a resource for newbies – the book includes useful advice for veterans as well.
