As much as we’d like to “stay in our lane”, sometimes circumstances compel us to venture outside of it, like right now.

The situation regarding trans rights in Arkansas may seem like a purely political topic, but it does actually affect the cycling community as a whole, so it’s worth all of us talking about it. What should be done here? What shouldn’t be done? How should you navigate the situation so you can decide for yourself?

There are no easy answers to this, but in this conversation with longtime cycling industry advocate (and PR/marketing veteran) Chris DiStefano, maybe we can all at least figure out a way to somehow move forward.

Here is one resource for a bit of guidance and information about what you can do to show your support for the trans community.

Happy International Women’s Day!

Over the past couple of years, the number of female-identifying cyclists has grown. More women are finding cycling, the joy and the freedom that accompanies hopping on a bike and taking off on an adventure. What continues to bring more women to cycling is the community, the friendships that develop around the bike.

To get a sense of where the cycling industry stands when it comes to female-identifying cyclists Abby chatted with two women who are immersed in the industry.

Elorie Slater, marketing manager of Pivot Cycles, has put a lot of thought into how to get more female-identifying riders on bikes. Through her experience at her bike shop and within the marketing world of cycling she has connected with other cycling companies to put aside their differences and band together to make cycling a more inclusive and welcome environment.

Luisa Grappone, an aerospace engineer for Hunt bike wheels, came to the cycling industry after working with aeroplanes. She has a unique perspective of being a woman in a male dominate field.

We at CyclingTips are proud to bring more women’s voices in front of the cycling world and continue to work towards growing cycling to include everyone who loves bikes, just like we do.
