Girls On Bikes is a stylish initiative that empowers girls in the urban community by promoting health and encouraging participation in recreational activities. We recognize that biking is traditionally not a space for people of color, by analyzing the history of cycling. Thus, through action we are deforming the barriers of colored people participating in activities that they are often not welcomed to. By promoting recreational activities we provide young girls and women a space to be feminine alongside being adventurous, driven, and determined to do all things. Girls On Bikes embraces the stigma of women being strong and sets out to create a culture of fashionable women on bikes making their presence disruptive by being recognized as unstoppable.
