New women bikers in NYC

Women In Motion: New Lady Riders Reflect on NYC Cycling from Streetfilms on Vimeo.

As we were counting bikers yesterday morning, it quickly became clear that most of the bikers were male. This is not really a surprise, as previous surveys have shown large gender disparities in bike commuting in the U.S. But I guess sitting there tallying bikers really nailed the point home.

What can the city (and bike advocate groups) do to make sure everyone feels comfortable and valued as bikers?
