To continue the upward trend of women in cycling and to support new female riders and racers, many new organizations have formed. You can get involved by learning about the organizations, becoming a member, and/or supporting these worthy organizations by donating and/or volunteering. In addition to these resources, be sure to check out The Chainlink's Forum and the Calendar of Events

The Amy D. Foundation
The Amy D. Foundation encourages and supports young women through cycling, inspiring the celebration of healthy challenge and empowering the confident pursuit of lofty dreams.

Little Bellas
Little Bellas is a mountain bike organization whose goal is to help young women realize their potential through cycling.

M2M's efforts are focused largely on increasing female ridership in Afghanistan including the Afghan women's cycling team.

Wisconsin Women Cycling
The mission of the Wisconsin Women Cycling is to develop, maintain, and support a network of women cyclists and supporters of women's cycling in Wisconsin. Wisconsin Women Cycling will work to advance the interests of women cyclists by supporting the developing amateur and junior women cyclist through networking and outreach efforts.

Women Bike (League of American Bicyclists)
In 2009, women accounted for just 24 percent of bicycle trips in the U.S. It’s time for that to change. That’s why the League launched Women Bike — the first national advocacy initiative to encourage, engage and elevate more women bicyclists in the United States. 

Women Bike Chicago  
A grass roots group started by local women to encourage other women to ride bikes for recreation and transportation.

Women's Cycling Association - Advocacy 
The WCA seeks to unify and represent women cyclists and advocate on their behalf: to sporting governing bodies, race organizers, and team management. We are lobbying for equal rights for women cyclists, reviewing existing policies and advocating for changes.

Women Cycling Project
The Women Cycling Project was created by the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) to stimulate collaboration among professionals to create a hospitable transportation environment that encourages more women to bicycle more places more often – alone, together and with their children.
