Women and Biking



Making bicycling more accessible for women in Pittsburgh

BikePGH’s Women & Biking Program works to encourage more women of all ages and backgrounds to incorporate bicycling into their lives. By opening the discussion about women’s lived experiences and challenges, we can assess how to better provide support and resources for women who want to ride bicycles in Pittsburgh.

Current Events:


The 3rd Annual Women & Bike Forum!


Join us on Saturday April 2nd 2016 at the William Pitt Union on Pitt’s campus for a day of speakers and workshops, where you can learn everything from the mechanics of your bike and how to ride it safely to being an advocate for better biking and walking. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you there! Get more information and Register here!
