ABOUT US

We Bike to Stay Alive.

 

Bike Ride for Black Lives is a community initiative based in Fort Collins, CO. Our activities include: 

1)  Pledging to ride 400 miles in the month of July to bring awareness to the 400+ years the Black and African American community has been fighting for social justice. Participation is free and open to everybody. Go here to learn more about The 400th Mile.

2) A Community Awareness Ride in solidarity together, honoring the Black Lives Matter movement and bringing awareness to the racial inequalities inherent in our criminal justice system. Join us July 11, 2021 to bridge gaps with movement and pedal for progress! Visit the Event Page for more details.

3) Fundraising for organizations that are actively working to advance the cause of racial justice in the United States. Learn more here and donate today!
