A great film by REI, Pedal Through, tells a universal story of stepping into your growth zone and learning how to pedal through being uncomfortable just like our youth do when they come on our Trail Rides!
"Analise had never camped or ridden a bike off the pavement when she decided to plan a week-long mountain biking adventure with an all Black female team: her best friend and fellow newcomer to the sport, DeJuanae Toliver, and professional mountain biker Brooklyn Bell. Together, they traverse the Oregon backcountry on an adventure full of exploration, curiosity, waterfalls, old growth forest, sparkling starscapes, and deep healing."

Looking for powerful examples of people of color in the cycling industry? Check out Bicycling Magazine's profile of Monica Garrison, a Writer, Photographer, and Founder of Black Girls Do Bike.
"When I ride my bike it feels as if I am doing my part to carve a path for other people of color in cycling. Being a black cyclist hopefully means that small actions on my part help break down the belief that people of color don’t ride bikes."

"Don’t just focus on Black grief and Black death. Include Black joy. We are more than our struggle, we aren’t just fighting to stop being murdered, we are fighting for the right and the ability to live full lives. We want to ride bikes, climb mountains, traverse slot canyons, and surf waves. Black folks deserve to enjoy the outdoors in every way."
Ayesha McGowan, a professional road cyclist, provides a potent road map on how to take affect lasting change in the outdoor industry.
