Find a Women and Transgender Bike Space near you

Many community bike shops across the country have a night for women and trans people. There are too many for us to list here, and we’d probably miss a lot anyhow. A good web resource for finding a community/diy bike spaces in your area is the Community Bicycle Organizations Wiki. These spaces may or may not have a women/trans/queer night, but if your local shop doesn’t have one, you should help get it started!
