Belated International Women's Day

Yes, the rest of the world celebrated women on March 8th. Tech Square (and I) came to the party late. After a depressing dearth of female bicyclists, four women came along - one right after the other - to represent Atlanta. These weren't the only people I saw yesterday. In fact, the streets were full of bicycles and I encountered real bicycle traffic on the way home from work.
One woman waited for the light to turn.
One was arriving on a pretty teal Kona.
One was riding right off the curb to go.
The fourth rode down to the corner.
[Disclaimer - I'm not endorsing riding on the sidewalk here... She went half a block to get to the nearest curb cut from her parking place - something to consider when placing bicycle racks.]
