Blacks & Bikes (Not trying to be racist)

When most people think of cyclist, they imagine the average person to be white. Well one group of cyclist is trying to change that. National Brotherhood of Cyclist recently made news when they showed up to the church to receive a blessing at Cathedral of Christ the Light sponsored by the group. Their aim was to promote health and exercise to combat obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif The group ihttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifs admirable in their aims, but they’re not the only group who made news recently. Black females in DC have been standing up to advocate cycling in the black community.

Veronica Davis is part of Black Women Bike DC who started off with only 6 members, but is up to 60.

Kinda weird I want to write about this, but it’s just as important as any other bicycle related topic. Now I'm gonna go away and think about this some more...
