WMNBikePGH: Making Bicycling Accessible for Pittsburgh Women and Non-Binary People

BikePGH’s Women and Non-Binary Program is inclusive of trans and cis women, intersex people, non-binary, genderqueer, agender and gender variant folks, as well as those whose gender identity falls outside of the dominant conceptions of gender. The program encourages conversation and provides spaces to come together over biking, advocacy and related topics while increasing representation of people who have historically marginalized gender identities.

We aim to create a safer space where people can speak and move freely, expressing themselves authentically without added fear of microaggressions and discrimination due to gender and expression. By opening the discussion about our lived experiences and challenges, we can assess how to better provide support and resources to ride bikes and increase mobility in Pittsburgh.

This three-hour class is for riders who are interested in increasing their skills and practicing advanced techniques for riding in traffic.
