However you come to bicycling, from whatever point in your life, the bicycle frees you. You take charge of your own transportation, your own health. You make your own breeze in your own hair. And for women, trans, and non-binary people who have frequently met with barriers to their personal mobility, this bike-agency can be especially meaningful. At the 2018 Women’s Bike Summit, we asked attendees to share their bike stories in their own words, in their own voices. Click their photos and take a listen, or read the interviews through the “Transcript” links.
