Women as “Safety-o-meters”


In Oregon they’re watching where women ride to determine whether a route or area is safe for riding. Check it! I love the implication that a group of women can potentially impact where their local government concentrates bike route safety efforts. Power to the people (ladies), people!

Unfortunately, such is not the case yet in St. Louis (don’t even get me started on the disappearing bike lanes on Clayton Road!) But I do believe what we’re starting here is only going to improve and deepen efforts for making STL a more bike-friendly city. Just need to keep it rolling!

More on this soon.
