Women Bike, Women Lead

The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and MCM are partnering on a women-led series of bike rides and workshops starting this Sat. Jan 24th and continuing on through April. These workshops are designed to encourage women to build their networks and grow their capacity for transforming their communities through active transportation, namely biking.

The Women Bike, Women Lead series is also dedicated to empowering women to expand personal and professional goals related to active transportation, especially for those who are new to advocacy and community mobilization.

The bike rides and workshops are provided at no cost and are reserved for women-identified participants. Pre-registration for workshops is required as there are limited spaces available.
