Five Things to Know About Black Girls Do Bike!

1. Who is Black Girls Do Bike (BGDB)?

Monica Garrison established non-profit organization Black Girls Do Bike in Spring of 2013. It has grown into a national organization with over 100+ chapters in all 50 states which are each led by a community Shero. Their goal is to build and promote a network of women of color who are interested in cycling. BGDB supports efforts to promote all women, particularly women and girls of color, to the joys of cycling. They have created a welcoming environment where female cyclists can offer support, advice, arrange rides, and share their knowledge. BGDB seeks to simplify cycling and serve as a liaison to assist new riders in breaking down obstacles to entry and integrating into the greater cycling community.

2. What is the Black Girls Do Bike Mentorship Program?

Black Girls Do Bike conducts a mentorship program to encourage new and experienced riders to join forces and ride together. Cyclists that discover their community lacks a chapter can create one for free as a passionate ride organizer and leader which is also known as a "Shero."
