In addition to this survey, the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) is presenting a FREE Webinar March 31: ?Writing Women Back into Bicycling: Changing Transportation Culture to Encourage More Women to Cycle More Places More Often.”

This free webinar is open to the public. March 31, 2010 from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
Register at www.apbp.org.

Women, a recent article in Scientific American said,?are considered an indicator for bicycle-friendly cities because they, more than men,?tend to want safe bike infrastructure and routes that go to practical places.

And that cycling survey for women? Interim results will be reported during the webinar, and?final results will released after May 15 as part of?National Bike Month.
