Black Women Bike

There's a good article in today's Post entiteld Black women take their place in D.C.'s bike lanes
Black Women Bike has attracted women with varied interests and skill levels — from triathletes, to women who are returning after years away from cycling, to women who don’t even own bikes yet. About 20 of the women recently got together for a happy hour at the Liaison Lounge on Capitol Hill.

"We talked about equipment, we talked about fears of riding in the road. And we talked about hair," said Washington, 33, a federal government analyst. "There always seems to be an attack on black women — we're not attractive or we don't exercise. We are dispelling myths about black women. We are carving out our own niche. Who said riding a bike had to be a white thing?"
