Hi All

Free Range Cycles in the Fremont Neighborhood of Seattle is owned by Shawna
Williams and lead mechanic Nikki Mcthewson  ( both former Bike Works staff
members and amazing people!!) and before Shawna it was owned for many years
by Kathleen Emry.  See this article about their great work  in this  post
in the Seattle bike blog
https://www.seattlebikeblog.com/2020/02/14/how-free-range-cycles-works-every-day-to-become-a-more-and-more-welcoming-bike-shop/

Also this post in the Seattle Bike Blog is about a survey about how
comfortable WTFNB folks feel at bike shops
https://www.seattlebikeblog.com/2020/02/14/splain-survey-rates-seattle-bike-shops-by-how-comfortable-women-trans-femme-and-gender-nonconforming-people-feel-there/
this kind of survey is likely replicable in other cities
