Changing Transportation Culture to Encourage More Women to Cycle More Places More Often

FABB's Fionnuala Quinn will be a panelist in a free webinar sponsored by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals to discuss women and bicycling. The title of the webinar is Writing Women Back into Bicycling: Changing Transportation Culture to Encourage More Women to Cycle More Places More Often. The session will be held on March 31, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. and is open to everyone.

From the APBP:
  • Connect with others interested in healthy, livable, bicycle-friendly
  • Learn about barriers, successes, international examples, what you can do
  • Women and girls are invited to respond to the online survey through 5/15/10 (interim results reported at the webinar)
  • Invite others to watch and listen with you - use this webinar as a springboard for local success as you encourage more people to cycle!
  • Can't participate live? At your leisure, view the free archived webinar later (link posted after the webinar at www.apbp.org)
Visit the APBP site to register for the webinar.

Thanks to Fionnuala for helping to make this session happen. According to APBP:
As part of the implementation process of the FHWA, AASHTO, NCHRP Int'l Scan on Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety and Mobility, APBP is hosting a free webinar on March 31, 2010 on women cycling that will explore encouragement strategies and barriers to bicycling. The webinar is free to the public thanks to a generous donation from a sponsor. We're hoping to max out APBP's webinar capacity of 1,000 participants. You can help us do that by spreading the word.

Special thanks to APBP member Fionnuala Quinn who raised the question of numbers of women cycling in the cities visited on the scan and who went on to spearhead a webinar and survey in record time.
