Also, many other enviornmental and pro bike groups will be in attendance!  Hope to see you there! 

Before the event, the Cambridge Health Alliance will be leading bike rides from multiple locations, converging on the breakfast. More information can be found below.

Follow up in Boston, where Boston Bikes is holding Bike Friday.  From multiple locations throughout the region, groups of cyclists will bike to City Hall Plaza in Boston for a free breakfast provided by Boloco and other local buisnesses.  Hit them both, because cycling is hungry work after all!

According to the League of American Bicyclists*, only 26% of all bicycle commuters in the US are women. Why do you think this is?

And what about women and other forms of car-free commuting?
