Lecture | February 14 | 4-5 p.m. | 534 Davis Hall


Jennifer Dill, Portland State University

Institute of Transportation Studies


In larger urban areas in the US, women make up only about one-third or fewer of the adults who bicycle for transportation. This is in contrast to major bicycling cities such as Copenhagen and Amsterdam where a gender gap in bicycling is non-existent. For cycling to make a major contribution to improving the sustainability of US urban areas, the gender gap must be addressed. This talk will discuss...   More >
