bikergo gal applies for TEDWomen in DCPosted: November 29, 2010
I help women get out of their cars and onto their bicycles to improve their health AND the health of our planet. I want women to see that cycling is fun, safe and family friendly, that bicycles can be comfortable, easy to operate, and carry children as well as groceries. In my regular mom’s body, without fancy clothes or gear, I show women how it’s done. I’d like to bring my bike and share photographs of the rides I lead to spread the word of women led and organized bike rides.
Those are the 100 characters where I describe my “Big Idea” in my application to speak at TEDWomen’s conference in Washington DC Dec. 7 and 8; organizers are offering an all-expense paid chance to attend.
While I’d love to attend and participate, if I’m not selected, writing my application was a great exercise into putting what I’m doing and why into words.
