Rescheduled: Lunch and Learn: Women and Bicycling Panel

12:15 PM - 01:30 PM Eastern Standard Time



This event has been rescheduled to April 11th! The panel speakers will provide an overview of several major factors that influence an individual’s decision to travel by bicycle and might carry a particularly high importance for women travelers: presence of bicycle facilities (engineering side of the equation), safety, policies such as Vision Zero that communities can implement to increase the share of people bicycling.

The panel speakers will provide an overview of several major factors that influence an individual’s decision to travel by bicycle and might carry a particularly high importance for women travelers: presence of bicycle facilities (engineering side of the equation), safety, policies such as Vision Zero that communities can implement to increase the share of people bicycling, and accommodating additional trip destinations along the way to or from work such as daycare pick-up and grocery shopping while traveling by bicycle.

The speakers will draw upon their professional expertise and personal experience to illustrate how we can encourage more women to bicycle and the benefits to the community at large when more people choose to do so. Planners will learn how to take specific steps through adopting local policies and planning for location for key community facilities and bicycle infrastructure to make bicycling more safe and appealing for everyone in their community, including for women. 

WHERE: Asheville Fire and Police Training Room, 4th floor of the Fire Department building, 100 Court Plaza, Asheville, NC 28801. Please note:  this is just one level up from the main entrance.
