Fast Company explores the female fixed biking culture in San Francisco. This will be the first invitation to opponents, teammates and players alike to make, break, & or follow rules, we are simply laying down the track.
We aim to open people’s eyes to the many different types of movement happening in San Francisco at any given moment and how we as women have adapted to thriving in motion. Whether that be moving through the flow of traffic, pedestrians, fog, or other cyclists, we want to show how fluidly travels through each on a daily basis—leaving a wake of grace that affects our surroundings and those occupying it.
We want to commemorate this city’s amazing ability to make lasting impressions on its people, especially its ability to influence people to form and participate in the growth of subcultures—and specifically that of track biking. We particularly celebrate the women who make up a small percentage of the brakeless track bike community. Since the inception of riding track bikes on the street in the late 90s, it has been mainly a man’s sport, but there have been women making significant strides and names for themselves along the way. We want to give a special thanks to those women for inspiring us and other women to start riding.
