Who We Are
Black People Ride Bikes (BPRB) is a Baltimore-based cycling and advocacy organization of black cyclists in every age bracket, from children to adults. Our organization is made up of both casual riders and avid cyclists, who regularly participate in cycling events throughout the country.
This organization was founded by two avid cyclists, Shaka Pitts and Nia Reed-Jones, as a way to introduce people of black diaspora to the many benefits of cycling they experienced first-hand. Their experiences taught them cycling can be a useful form of self-care, healthcare and exploration. Both, Nia and Shaka, are advocates for improving cycling conditions in the Greater Baltimore Region and beyond. BPRB's main goal is to make cycling more accessible regardless of socioeconomic background, ethnicity, or experience level.
