Last updated 1/28/2019 at 8:16pm

On Saturday, April 6, Bike Pittsburgh will host the 6th Annual Women and Non-Binary Forum presented by Dollar Bank. This forum brings together women and non-binary people from across the region to talk about shared experiences, challenges, and tools to address mobility, biking, advocacy, and more.

“This year’s forum has a special focus on empowerment, giving women and non-binary people the tools they can use to exercise their voice and get involved in effective organizing,” said Julie Mallis, organizer of the Women and Non-Binary Program. Ms. Mallis notes the forum is undergoing a number of changes in 2019 including expanded accessibility and inclusivity by offering childcare and ASL interpretation, among other accommodations.

This day of camaraderie includes morning yoga, breakfast snacks, breakout sessions ranging from health and wellness to DIY bicycle cap making, keynote lecture, lunch, networking, and group bike ride to end the event.

The forum will be held at the Ace Hotel Gym from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. To register for the event, see BikePGH’s online event page or call the BikePGH office at 412-325-4334.

In addition to the forum, BikePGH will be offering a women and non-binary-only Confident City Cycling class on Sunday, April 7 from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. From navigating traffic patterns to effective braking methods, this class is intended for riders who know how to ride a bike, and are looking for instruction on how to operate it safely on city streets.

Scholarships and discount codes are available if the cost is prohibitive or if advertising to a group or club. Visit to request a scholarship. ASL interpretation and childcare available upon request. Visit to fill out the Accessibility and Accommodations Survey.

Contact Julie at or 412-325-4334 with any questions about the forum, and to volunteer for this or any other BikePGH event, feel free to email
