#WomenWhoBike Ride

Thanks to DOT for the fantastic photo! This morning, Motivate and Citi Bike were proud to join Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and her staff at DOT, TLC Commissioner Meera Joshi, State Senator Brad Hoylman and 50 women leaders, educators and advocates on a #womenwhobike ride in honor of Women’s Bike Month! Together we inaugurated 6th Avenue’s brand new protected bike lane, the latest addition to DOT’s growing list of projects that improve and expand our City’s bike network. With this ride, and the Women’s Bike Month initiative, we aim to raise awareness about the gender gap in cycling. Currently, women make up 50% of the population in NYC but only around 25% of the cycling population, so we were happy to spend a beautiful morning in great company promoting cycling as a safe and convenient transit option.
