Encourage more girls and young women to try the sport. My LBS has a youth development team, and guess what, it's all boys! WTF? I live in NorCal (bay area) so this is surprising. Create high school teams or sport clubs that have loaner bikes. Sometimes it's not necessarily a social factor, but a financial factor to any young person joining the sport. When I was in high school (1990's era, very progressive city) we didn't have a cycling team. My friend had a super sweet cannondale road bike and I couldn't imagine affording something like that. Now I have 5+ bikes for all types of riding, and race at a high level locally. But I didn't start racing until I was 26. Too bad I didn't get an earlier start.
