About this Event

Join this approximately 2 hour bike tour by NYC's Bike Mayor, The Brown Bike Girl.

Bike tour shows cyclists how the nationally-instituted housing segregation policy of redlining started to racially define neighborhoods, steer advancement & quality of life resources to or from certain place (and races of people) using East & Central section of Harlem, "the Black Mecca," as backdrop.

This bike tour will help participants more understand themselves, their assumptions, where they ride, and why the bike lanes ever stop.

  • Appx 2 hours.
  • Skill level: Riders should be at ease and keep a consistent moderate pace in traffic (about 10 mph).
  • No children under 14 years on unattached bikes for this ride.
