Changing Perceptions: Black Women Bike DC
If you have not heard or meet Veronica O. Davis, here is a bit on her amazing story on how started Black Women Bike DC.
“She was pedaling past a public housing complex near her Washington, D.C., neighborhood one day when a young black girl shouted to her mother, “Mommy, mommy, it’s a black lady on a bike.”
“At first I was like, ‘Why is she so excited?’ And I realized I’m probably the first cyclist that she saw who looked like her,” said Davis.
“With Black Women Bike: DC, Davis works to change the perception of just who is a cyclist. It’s not just spandex-clad weekend warriors riding 30-speed carbon fiber bikes. It’s moms who want to ride with their kids. It’s women who are training for their first triathlon. And it’s utilitarian commuters like her.”
