(Video) Biking Her Way Out of Unemployment
After months of emails and phone calls, I finally met Robin Bylenga in person at Interbike. A whirlwind of energy and passion, Bylenga wasn't just there as the owner of Pedal Chic, a women's-focused bike boutique in Greenville, South Carolina. She was there as the co-founder of Spokeswomen, a networking group for women in the bicycle industry, too.
Running a business, raising a family and connecting female leaders nationwide is more than a full-time job. But, for Bylenga, bicycling is more than business. "We like to think of ourselves as a women's empowerment center," she says of Pedal Chic.
That's certainly what it's been for her... as Robin explains in this segment on CNN Money.
