The Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has released a women's cycling survey. The survey comes from PBOT's Active Transportation Division and it aims to learn more about women's current bike use and interest in cycling in general.
PBOT's Women on Bikes program has been leading rides and creating resources for women since 2005. Currently, just 31 percent of Portland's bike riders are women. According to the most recent City data, that number has not changed since 2003. Women are often singled out for promotion of cycling because it's believed that they are an "indicator species" of a bike-friendly city.
