Women Bike

Women Bike is the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s program to inspire more women to incorporate a bike in their lives and utilize biking to meet their personal health, fitness, and transportation needs. In the Portland Metro region women account for only a third of bike riders. We’re here to change that.

Women Bike is open to all women, female identifying, and gender nonconforming people who enjoy biking (or think they might). We aim to decrease the barriers to riding a bike through coffee meetups, happy hours, monthly rides and workshops, and mentorship. Check out our event calendar for upcoming Women Bike events.

The heart of the program is a Facebook group which serves as a resource, hub, and a way to connect with other women riding in your area. To get involved, join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, or sign up for our Women Bike email updates.

For additional information, please contact Elizabeth Cabral at elizabeth@thestreettrust.org or by phone at 503-226-0676 x25.

Roll Models

Roll Models are women who have a love of biking that they want to share with other women in their lives. They need not be experts, road warriors, everyday commuters, or elite athletes (though some of them might be), they need only have a passion for biking and want to share the gift of biking with other women. Roll models provide mentorship and peer support to the interested but concerned women in their community.
