As firm believers of Black Lives Matter and as stewards in our local and national bike communities, we feel it is our social responsibility/duty to acknowledge the issue of racial inequality in America.
Inspired by the following print presentation from the YWCA, Club Ride is committed to be an “Ally,” through continuing to educate ourselves, to get further involved, and to increase our commitment and financial support of social justice work in our communities and nationally. We want to give back in a meaningful, constructive way both now and on an ongoing basis.
Since our company is rooted in the DNA of the bike, we want to pursue, as part of the giving back, bike centric causes that support social justice, directly and indirectly.
We are choosing to activate and follow this path immediately by donating a total of $20,000 to be allocated among the following non-profit organizations.
