About Us

Red, Bike and Green is a collective of Black urban cyclists seeking to improve the physical, economic and environmental health of African Americans by strengthening the presence of bike culture within the Black community.  Our objective is to create free, safe and accessible spaces for individuals of African descent to explore healthy ways of living through cycling.

 

What We Do

For four years, RBG has managed to sustain this space through the passionate efforts of volunteers and grassroots organizing.  Since it’s first ride of 2008 in Oakland, California, RBG has evolved into a cultural movement, a response to social inequity, and an agent of change.  With chapters now in Chicago, Atlanta, New York and Oakland we are seeking ways to continue this growth and maintain the integrity of the work.

 

With your contribution, we will be able to implement programming and education that will expand our reach further into communities that are underrepresented in the cycling world.

 

How You Can Help

Our goal is to raise $16,000 to push us through the 2013 season.  This money will help us increase our outreach, strengthen our bike education and maintenance programs and fund new advocacy campaigns within our local communities.  

 

If you are an advocate for change and excited about the bike movement, now is the time to show your support for Red, Bike and Green (Not to mention the snazzy giveaways you’ll receive as a token of our appreciation!)

 

Please spread the word to sustain Red, Bike and Green for another season!


One Love.  RBG
