BIKEPOC & The Importance of Taking Up Space

13 people are interested in this workshop

BIKEPOC is a new social cycling group for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Colour) who identify as Women, Trans, Femme, Non-Binary. We are a Toronto sister chapter of Friends on Bikes. Our mission is to create a safer space, create more exposure, and build a community for folks like us. We strive to build and foster an inclusive and accessible environment for cyclists who constantly feel excluded from Toronto's bicycle community. There is currently a massive lack of representation for F/T/W/N-B of color in cycling media, bicycle shops, advocacy and organizations. We believe that we can break down the typical white male cyclist stereotype if we combine and amplify our voices together. 

We'll be discussing the importance and need for creating safer spaces like BIKEPOC, "taking up space", allyship, and more.

There will be a short presentation followed by an open discussion.
