Professional mechanic & bike shop consultant, Marzhel Pinto, invites POC insiders and activists from the cycling world to discuss their experiences in navigating the post-2020 activism climate (where numerous bike organizations pledged to make radicla changes to inclusion and equity practices prompted by social pressures resulting from the 2020 Black Lives Matter demonstrations. )

Have these cycling brands and nonprofit cycling advocacy organizations followed through and transformed? One year later are there more POC professionals being funded, hired, credited, or consulted in cycling? Are POC rider safety and needs being accomodated?

Roundtable moderated by bicycle advocacy consultant, Courtney Williams of The Brown Bike Girl.
