April Streeter, author of Women on Wheels, A Handbook and How-to for City Cyclists will discuss women, cycling, and why riding a bike is (still) a revolutionary act. The presentation will include a brief history of women's cycling and some of the fearless females who flouted the conventions of their day to pioneer the popularity of biking. She offers inspiration for both new and experienced city cyclists.
