When Brendt Barbur of the BFF and I started talking about this project one of the ideas was to include as much of a female perspective as possible. I spoke with the guys at Orange 20 and they immediately told me about Megan Dean. Track-star, raced the Furnace Creek 508 and builds wicked steel steeds in a neighborhood that has become a hub of cycling culture here in town.
Another place where the girls shine in LA is the local bike coalition. Of all the top admin and get-it-done folks in this great organization, around 90% are women. They’ve pushed for safer riding, gone up against the mayor and police chief for cyclists rights, and implemented a sharrows program to make the roads safer.
