The morning session of the Women’s Forum is complete and I am already worn out. The energy is so powerful as people, women, stand up and talk about what they are doing to change our world.
The message about getting typically non-cycling populations on bikes and having fun is pretty much…”Get them on bikes.” This is not a discussion of infrastructure or enforcement but rather a broad case of opening doors to people riding through education. Not formal classes, although that sometimes happens, but teaching through shared experience on the bike.
This is working in all size cities and even in Afghanistan. Doesn’t cost a lot of money and isn’t intended to be a nationwide, organized program. This is grass roots activism at its best.
Sounds like a great approach to me.
