As the largest recreational cycling club in the Twin Cities we realize that now is not the time to be silent. We are shocked and disturbed by the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and so many others. We recognize the powerful effect that systemic racism has had on our black community, as well as other people of color. We don’t have a lot of answers right now. We are listening. We are learning.
We recognize that we, the Twin Cities Bicycling Club, have work to do to connect with all races and cultures. We believe that black lives matter and are committed to creating a more inclusive climate within our cycling community. More to come.
