Did you know, men cyclists outnumber women cyclists at a 2:1 ratio in the United States? Did you know the number of women cyclists decreased by 13 percent between 2000 and 2010?
While the U.S. sees few women pedaling the bike lanes, a majority of cyclists in foreign countries, such as the Netherlands, are women. Why is this lack of interest in cycling so prevalent for women in America?
Active is partnering with sportswear brand Rapha to tackle this and many other questions during our Twitter chat at 2:00 p.m. CST Tuesday, June 30.
Come prepared to join the conversation, ask questions, share anecdotes or read and learn about women in cycling. Active and Rapha look forward to educating everyone about this beautiful sport and motivating women to experience the joys and receive the health benefits of two-wheel travel.
You can follow the chat with the hashtag #ACTIVEchat, or follow @active and @rapha_n_america to stay up to speed on everything cycling.
