During a common refrain from cycling advocates was that busy streets in Altadena and elsewhere make it hard for anybody but young men to ride bikes.
Several advocates both at the Altadena Town Council and the county hearing said specifically that many women don't bike because they fear for their safety on city streets that don't have separate bike lanes to keep cyclists away from traffic.
Of course, it was not just women that were mentioned: advocates named older people in general and children as other groups who are not able to take advantage of street biking.
So what do you think Altadena? Are you a female biker? Do you see a lot of female bikers on the road? Do you think the majority of local bikers are young men? And if so, do you think that is a problem? Can it be solved? Please weigh in below in the comments section.
