    Regarding Mary Wisniewski’s article, there are large segments of our country’s bike culture that are SO male oriented and not welcoming to women. Having male voices shout down women over the need for infrastructure doesn’t help. We have a long way to go.

    I don’t think there’s one simple answer. It’s a combination of factors, which is why it hasn’t been an easy problem to solve. I feel that part of it is biological – that men are generally more inclined to take risks than women, and that women often perceive risks differently than men.

    If more women designed our infrastructure, and had an input on design, that would help. I appreciate the female leadership in our transportation department, but I wish there were more female engineers in the mix.
