Gender disparities exist everywhere, and biking is not immune. U.S. women currently account for about a quarter of bike trips, despite representing more than half of the population. The Wheel Mill in Homewood is hoping to change that. The cycling park is hosting its regular Ride Like a Girl weekend, where instructors will teach women and girls how to ride confidently in different types of terrain. The workshop provides “a supportive, encouraging environment to challenge yourself and learn new skill.” The days will be broken down into clinics, where riders will focus on different skills, whether they are riding a BMX, mountain, or road bike. Riders can even practice jumps into the foam pit. Prizes are awarded to those who give their best effort. Participants must be 8 years old to attend and can sign up for one or two days on Sat., Jan. 12 or Sun., Jan. 13. No boys allowed.
Price: $85 for one day, $160 for both days
