BLACK LIVES MATTER

 



BLACK LIVES MATTER

Recognizing that systemic oppression is real matters.
We are late, but we've been listening.
We are committed to affecting change in our community.
 
Cycling is not exempt from the systemic racism that plagues the world.
But our history does not have to dictate our future.
We are proud to represent thoughtful brands such as Giant, Liv, Kona, Ibis, Pearl Izumi, and many others and support their commitment to make cycling more accessible for all.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Full Cycle was founded as a community space and a co-op, and that spirit remains.
But we must do better to support the BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color).
As a privileged industry, it's up to us to dismantle the system.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

We will do better.
Here's how we are starting.
Will you join us?
We have launched 
a fundraiser to bring more bikes to people of color in partnership with Community Cycles
We are supportive of our employees' individual fundraisers & chosen ways to make a change.
We support our non-profit partners (People for BikesWorld Bicycle ReliefBicycle ColoradoCyclists 4 Community) that advocate for cycling and outdoor inclusivity.
Our goal is to provide resources that you can use to help in your own way.


SUPPORT OUR CAUSE


INSPIRING & EMPOWERING OUR COMMUNITY TO RIDE BICYCLES MORE OFTEN


JUNETEENTH


The New York Times has put together a collection of historical photos, poetry and articles about this date, which commemorates the end of slavery in the U.S.

“As someone who has celebrated Juneteenth for a long time, I think we need it now — not in lieu of the freedom, justice and equality we are still fighting for — but in addition, because we have been fighting for so very long,” Veronica Chambers, an editor who spearheaded the project, writes.



MAKING CYCLING ACCESSIBLE TO PEOPLE OF COLOR 


Full Cycle is partnering with Community Cycles to contribute to their Earn-A-Bike program, which gets bicycles to about 200 low-income people in Boulder every year.  Approximately 50% of EarnABike participants are Latinx, about 5% are African American, and 3% Native American.


In addition to the general Earn-A-Bike programCommunity Cycles has developed several variations of the program in partnership with local agencies and organizations.  These versions of the Earn-A-Bike program assist specific groups of people in our community, all reaching high proportions of people of color and low-income people in Boulder County.

SUPPORT ONE OF THESE CAUSES



support safer cycling


The poorest Americans, who are primarily BIPOC, bike the most.


"Bikes are disproportionately important tools for the lowest-income workers. The reasons are simple, and something any bike commuter would recognize: biking to work is cheap and, in a growing number of cities, convenient." (

Cyclists 4 Community's mission is to develop safety, educational, philanthropic, and social initiatives and programs to create a positive experience for all users of our roads and bikeways.
