More diversity on trails and in the bike industry.
Shahrzad Enderle // Bike Bridge e.V.
„The merit of cycling particularly for immigrants and refugee women is that it produces a unique urban subjectivity. Being able to ride a bike increases the women´s everyday spatial mobility, benefit them and their families by reducing transportation costs and help them to develop a sense of ownership of their cities. More diversity in cycling could profoundly benefit not only individuals but also cities and societies."
