Chicago-area cyclists unite annually at Bike Swap to shop for bikes, bike parts, bike clothes and accessories. We also swap stories over beer and meet other cycling enthusiasts. A lot of women showed up at this year’s event, giving me the chance to ask some fellow female cyclists what biking means to them. I discovered that, to these women, it’s much more than a form of transportation.
