    RBG is on a mission to get Black folks riding, make Black bicycle culture cool, and honor the memory of our ancestor and the first Black world champion cyclist, Mr. Marshall Walter "Major" Taylor (November 26, 1878 – June 21, 1932). And, this is why we ride, we ride for our people and we ride for our community...
