WABA’s Women & Bicycles Program Launch Party

Presented by the League of American Bicyclists

Now two years in the making, WABA invites you to the official launch of Women & Bicycles, our outreach program to get more women bicycling through mentorship, skillshare events, and social gatherings. 

The timing couldn’t be better. The very next day is the National Women’s Cycling Forum, the opening event of The National Bike Summit. The Forum hosts groups and individuals who work throughout the country to get more women on bikes, so we encourage you to attend!  Click here to learn more and register for the National Women’s Cycling Forum.
