Welcome to our New Website!
Our intent with this Women on Bikes California website and our new Pedal Love Project is to inspire more people, and in particular women and girls, to ride bikes as a part of their daily lives. We are now an initiative of the California Bicycle Coalition! Stay tuned for information on our series of new media leadership trainings in 2014 "Active Living Plugged In." Our new sponsorship page will be up by 12/9/13 - if you want information prior to that please email wobsocal (at) gmail.com.

Greetings and welcome to our new website!
Pedal Love is Women on Bikes California's love letter to California's growing bike culture. While our main focus is on women, men are certainly welcome!
We began as Women on Bikes SoCal in September of 2011. Please excuse us while we combine the two websites!
Join us to discover how ordinary people are making extraordinary changes in their own daily lives - by bike.
Rediscover the power of story (a favorite phrase from Krista Tippet's TEDtalk on compassion) as we introduce you to people from across our state in autobiographical blogs, interviews, photo essays and videos who have turned to the bike because they want to:
- connect better with their neighborhood and community
- rebuild their health and well-being
- better experience the beauty of our planet
- express their own unique sense of style
- create more economic prosperity
- live more consciously and set a better example for their children
- go on some wonderful adventures and much more!
To the left meet our talented hosts for this fascinating journey. Are you ready to share your own life by bike with us? Connect with us here.
New to the idea of bicycling? Or contemplating a return after a long time away? We have all kinds of resources to help you on this journey including our "Street Savvy" adult bicycle education!
