Meet the Pedal Love Culture & Lifestyle Council
Please join the conversation!
Starting in September 2016 Pedal Love launches an eighteen month project (part storytelling platform, part leadership development, and part traditional and social media outreach campaign) to focus on measurably increasing coverage of positive, compelling stories about women and bicycling in the regional and national media. The project gives center stage to casual bicycling as a happy activity - and joyful form of transportation - an activity that nearly anyone can participate in, whether they’re 3 years old or 93 years young.
The "Pedal Love Culture & Lifestyle Council" are women from a variety of backgrounds and areas of expertise in bicycling, from advocates to policy experts, from entrepreneurs to change agents. All are leaders and culture-shifters with proven track records, passion and talent to communicate the opportunities the bike provides as a vehicle for optimism and happiness in the lives of women today.
But this project isn't just about us. This is a call to action for women of of all ages, races, and backgrounds who have discovered the joy and opportunity of bicycling - and the women longing to ride again, or for the first time ever. We invite you to join us. We invite you to step up and share your story with these hashtags: #PedalLove #MindfulMobility #Women4MindfulMobility #SelfPowered and #WomenBike
