About The Brown Bike Girl

When COVID-19 was announced as a major threat to the United States, leaders of crowded urban areas unanimously rushed to tell people to bike instead of shared transit... Then left them hanging with no further guidance.

Advocate for bicycling and racial equity in transportation, The Brown Bike Girl, knew she didn't have all the answers.  But she knew she could contribute guidance for the impending bike boomas a teacher of bike safety, group ride leadership trainer, and organizer for inclusive accessibility solutions. 

Saving Cyclists - NYC and Abroad...

  • So after one week of waiting on city and national leaders, The Brown Bike Girl jumped into action producing a series of five 15-minute "commuter how-to" videos tailored to help new commuters safely navigate city streets and adapt their bikes for heavy-duty use throughout the pandemic.  
  • In April and May she created nationally-accessible social programming to cheer the spirits of quarantining cyclists while helping them learn how individuals and clubs across the nation were creating and adapting new COVID safety practices via her #cyclingthrucovid Instgram BIPoC highlights and #BikeBingoWednesdays. 
  • In May, The Brown Bike Girl formally accepted the nomination to become the first ever NYC People's Bike Mayor (an unfunded citizen advocate) with the platform to end racist bike elitism, unite the community, and to save more lives by producing more free bike education to that reach all New Yorkers, especially people of color -- who are most likely to live in neighborhoods unprotected by bike lanes and dependent least outreached to by mainstream bike organizations that are supposed to advocate  for safety.
  •  In Sept, when COVID fatality numbers showed that the highest diagnosis and death rates exist in low-income neighborhoods of color, she launched the #BigFixDayBK bike repair day to fix as many bikes as possible for free in these target neighborhoods and restore social distance friendly biking as a option that can save lives!
