Friends on Bikes is a social cycling crew for Black, Indigenous, and people of color who are women, trans, and/or non-binary in the Pacific Northwest.
WHO WE ARE
Since 2017, Friends on Bikes has organized rides, workshops, and social events for our cycling community! Each event is full of fun, snacks, and radical bike love.
Keep in touch on happenings through Slack and social.
Like FOB, BIKEPOC is a social cycling group for BIPOC TWIG folks in Toronto!
We want to ensure that Friends on Bikes participants have a safe, supportive, and fun cycling community they belong to. We encourage all forms of riding, from everyday commuting to casual riding to off-road adventures.
We want to bring more exposure to BIPOC who are women, trans, and/or non-binary. There is a huge lack of representation for BIPOC in cycling media, advocacy, and organizations. We believe we can break down the typical white male cyclist stereotype by combining and amplifying our voices.
We believe in volunteering, donating, and working with our allies to encourage more cycling advocacy with the FOB community. We support nonprofits, businesses, and individuals who encourage progress for cycling.
The name Friends on Bikes originally came from a group of (Asian) friends while attending Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, who loved all things related to cycling, from exploring their city on two wheels to riding in almost every state in America. While most of the group has moved to other states, they still have a passion for cycling and riding their bikes together whenever they reunite.
FOB welcomes all BIPGM now!
