A new bike group aimed at providing a safe workout space for LGBT people had its inaugural ride in Ottawa this week.

Bike Yeah! is one of several groups in the city offering physical activity targeted at gender identity rather than skill level, joining the ranks of a monthly swim for transgender children and a fitness room for LGBT people.

"It's just important to make people feel comfortable and create a community where people can come and know they're going to be respected," Josephine Masterson, the co-founder of Bike Yeah!, said.
