After 18 episodes we are tackling one of the more important topics we can in growing a better bike industry. Can you guess what it is?

This topic is one that I was focused on for 10 years with Bike Shop Girl, and that is attracting and retaining women in cycling and in the bike industry. This bi-monthly series will have 12 episodes and is sponsored by Quality Bicycle Products. We are talking to everyone from bike shops, brands, and female cyclists.

  1. Hi Arleigh, I’m a female bike shop owner in Utah that is actively working to get more women on bikes in our community. We have four locations and we partner with local organizations to elevate the riding experience, both on road and on MTB, for women and kids. I’d love to talk with you if you have the time. Thanks!
