June 2015 Lunch Program: Gender Differences in Bicycling

11:30 AM - 01:00 PM Central Standard Time



This is a discussion about how results from a series of studies in Davis, California point to comfort and liking of bicycling as more important factors than convenience, and they suggest that differences between men and women begin early in life.

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Susan Handy, Chair of the Department of Environmental Science and Policy and the Director of the National Center for Sustainable Transportation at the University of California, Davis as our June Lunch Program Speaker! Please join us on June 29th for a fascinating presentation from Dr. Handy on Gender Differences in Bicycling: Evidence from Davis, CA.   Register here

 

Bicycling as a mode of transportation has many benefits for women, yet throughout most of the world, women cycle less than men.  Researchers have put forth many reasons for the gender gap in cycling, including that bicycling is less convenient for women, that they are less comfortable bicycling, and that they like bicycling less than men.  Understanding women's attitudes toward bicycling is thus an important step towards the development of policies and programs to increase bicycling among women.  Results from a series of studies in Davis, California point to comfort and liking of bicycling as more important factors than convenience, and they suggest that differences between men and women begin early in life.
