Cascade’s women-focused She Bikes program launches tonight on Capitol Hill

Citing statistics showing that men are more likely to bike than women in the region, Cascade Bicycle Club is launching a new women-focused series of rides, events and classes.

She Bikes Cascade already features a packed schedule through April and May, and the whole effort kicks off today (Tuesday) with a launch party on Capitol Hill. Swing by Vermillion Art Gallery from 6 – 9 p.m., even if you don’t consider yourself a cyclist. The whole idea is to provide an inviting space for women who bike, want to bike more or want to give it a try.

More details on the program from Cascade:

81 percent of bicycle commuters in Washington State are male, 65 percent of our membership is male, and only one-in-four STP riders is female. We’d like to change that.

With a vision of bicycling for all, Cascade wants everyone to discover the joys, the empowerment, the practicality and the community of bicycling. And that’s why we’re excited to introduce She Bikes Cascade, a series of inclusive rides, classes, clinics, and social events to encourage more women to discover the joys and benefits of biking.
