      Why Women Bike . . . and Why They Don't

      To follow up on yesterday's piece by Janice Turner on "dull cycling" in the
      UK, the ever-stylish biker April Streeter reports from Portland on a survey
      of why women in the US cycle, and why they do not.

      (And if you are a female cyclist and have views on why women cycle, or
      perhaps do not, in your country, let us hear from you too.)


      Full piece in World Streets today at www.WorldStreets.org

      Women who try to walk or cycle here find male drivers honking at them, yelling sexual obscenities at them, and even following them. This likely happens here

        Women who try to walk or cycle here find male drivers honking at them, yelling sexual obscenities at them, and even following them. This likely happens here because, with the exception of a few areas, anyone walking or cycling is completely alone and sticks out like someone standing in the middle of a desert.
