Our Mission

To elevate and sustain female bicycle ridership through engagement, education and service reform.

Our program

Get Women Cycling (GWC) provides members with the services, education, and support they need to get riding and to keep riding.

We offer one-on-one consultations to find bike-related solutions that best fit your style and budget, including bicycle purchase and repair assistance, sourcing products and services to meet your needs, and demonstrating how to ride safely and confidently.

We organize and lead guided bicycle rides to give you the opportunity to meet other riders and discover new neighborhood destinations.

We create and teach educational workshops where you learn how to ride a bicycle, maintain your bicycle, navigate city streets, and incorporate cycling into your lifestyle.

We follow up with you to ensure positive engagements and experience throughout your cycling quest.

We created a strategic Commuter Awareness Outreach (CAO) initiative to address safe street passage and the changing landscape of daily commuting in NYC. Our primary goal brings together the voices of all commuters—people who choose to bike, people who choose to walk, people who choose to take public transportation, and people who choose to drive—to initiate education, conversation, activism, and policy aimed at safe and efficient transit for all New Yorkers.

In addition, we are involved in grassroots initiatives; we fundraise for health and environment related causes and we promote local businesses and community agencies.

I am excited to see that someone is paying attention the women riders like me. I don’t compete, I’m not an athlete, but I love to ride...and even more so with my toddler. Going to a bike store for help can be the equivalent of walking into an autobody shop and talking to a car mechanic; intimidating and overwhelming. I know tons of women who go to the gym and are fit, but none ride bicycles. GWC is helping me get in touch with other cyclists like me and has provided some great education tools.
