Women's Bike Summit a huge success

FABB's Fionnuala Quinn was one of the organizers of the National Women's Bicycle Summit held on September 13 in Long Beach, California. See the summary of the event by the League of American Bicyclist's Carolyn Szczepanski, Women’s Summit a HUGE Success:
I had barely gotten the words “Welcome to the National Women’s Bicycling Summit” out of my mouth when a woman in the crowd yelled “It’s about time!” — and a massive cheer erupted from the packed room.

I could say the energy and enthusiasm were off the charts for the sold-out (well, more than sold-out) event on Thursday, but a) I’m still speechless and b) even that would be an understatement. With more than 275 women from across the country in attendance, we saw — and, more importantly, felt — our diverse collective power to lead and advance the bicycle movement.
