Conclusion: Announcement of APBP Women & Girls Cycling Photo and Video Contest

This webinar includes international perspectives, preliminary results of the Women Cycling survey and key recommendations from the U.S. Dept. of Transportation (FHWA, AASHTO, NCHRP) International Scan on Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety and Mobility. APBP is hosting this webinar as part of the International Scan implementation process. Scan participants saw so many more women cycling in the five countries we visited than one typically sees in most U.S. cities. Why? Why not here? The recommendations of the International Scan could help to increase the number of women and girls cycling in the U.S. and Canada. If more women and girls bicycled more places more often, they could achieve better health while having a very positive impact on their community and the environment. The solutions cross many disciplines and address many factors related to economic viability here and abroad.

As part of this project, women and girls are invited to take a "snapshot in time survey” at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/womencycling. We would like to hear from non-cyclists as well as current and past cyclists. Preliminary survey results highlighted during the webinar; final results available after May 15, 2010 when the survey closes.
