We are experiencing a historical turning point for social justice in America, and bikes are on the front lines. From leading peaceful protests to organizing rides to remember our nation’s turbulent past, bikes can help us listen, learn and do better.

Denver BLack lives matter Solidarity Ride

Denver, Colorado | 7.7 mi

19 days after the murder of George Floyd, this ride was a protest, a call for justice, a celebration of Black cyclists, a time to pay reverence to lives lost and an effort to build support for Black communities and end the state violence that they have endured for centuries.

selma 55

Montgomery, Alabama | 52 mi

This past February, we had the opportunity to participate in the Selma 55 — a commemoration of the Selma to Montgomery Voters Rights March of 1965 and also a celebration of Black joy. While the Voters Rights March of 1965 is a painful reminder of the systemic racism and white supremacy that Black Americans endure throughout their daily lives, this event unified Black cyclists from across the nation to celebrate the boundless joy that is always present in group rides.

Chicago, Illinois | 9.0 mi

The Chicago Race Riot of 1919 was the most violent in Illinois history but still remains widely unknown to many. To commemorate the centennial of the riots in 2019, Newberry Library and The Chicago Race Riot of 1919 Commemoration Project created a bike route that took riders through the Bronzeville and Bridgeport neighborhoods, stopping at key historical sites relevant to the riot and the events that lead up to it.
