Womxn Bike Wilmington is a new program that creates accessible space for women and female-identifying residents to learn how to bike, hone their skills, and create positive peer connections. Women have statistically lower participation rates in cycling and active transportation, despite the many benefits of riding to health and happiness. Whether you are a first time rider or a seasoned cyclist, Womxn Bike Wilmington offers a variety of services to help you build confidence in your skills and meet other ladies who cycle. Womxn Bike Wilmington services include:
- Social rides
- Mechanics classes, bike fitting, and skills workshops
- Social media platform where women can network, share rides, ask questions, and more!
