The number of urban cyclists has skyrocketed in the Bay Area in recent years. In San Francisco, ridership increased 96 percent from 2006 to 2013. But women make up just one-third of bike riders in the city.

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about bike commuting, which is on the rise in many cities around the world.  A US Census Bureau Survey shows a 66% increase in bicycle commuters from 2002 to 2010.  What are the policies and infrastructures that make this possible?  And does bike commuting make our cities better? Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  What are your bike-to-work stories?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
