Hear Tell: BlackWomenBikeDC...
But Davis, a Hillcrest resident and local activist thought, there had to be more women like her who might just need a little nudge to get started. And she was right: check the firstname.lastname@example.org
and you'll find she's attracted more than 300 members to the group.
Recently she took some of the members on a shopping trip--to BicycleSpace , where they got tips on finding just the right bike. That's where I caught up with Davis and members of her group who were having fun connecting and oohing and aahing over the latest bikes and bike accessories.
Here's what Davis has to say: about being a black woman who bikes, about sharing the road, and about
'the Mary Poppins Effect'.

Tanya Ellis says it's been a long time since she's been on a bike, but is eager to get rolling again.
