Seattle nonprofit Bike Works is one of four organizations in the U.S. to receive a 2014 League of American Bicyclists mini-grant to support programing that encourages women to be active participants and leaders in the cycling community.
Bike Works received $750, which will help fund family biking immersion seminars and expos. These events are meant to help moms (and anyone else who attends) to get the resources they need to bike safely and confidently with their families.
“We know many trips taken by car are three miles or less – and we know that if people feel confident and well-equipped they’ll be more likely to take those trips by bike,” says Deb Salls, executive director of Bike Works. “Our family bike expos and seminars help families gain those skills and find the right equipment for their family’s needs.”
