Gear Femmes is Bike New York’s education initiative for women/trans/femme cyclists. Gear Femmes matches aspiring bike commuters with mentors who will literally show them the way — with techniques and route selection, making riding to work as fun as it is productive. Through bike education classes, specialized instruction, and community events, aspiring commuters develop their bike commuting skills with support from the Gear Femmes community.
Gear Femmes Coffee Clubs and other community events are open to all women/trans/femme cyclists, regardless if they are currently participating as a mentor or mentee. Come out for a cup of your morning comfort beverage and connect with other cyclists in your area.
