BIPOC Community Ride (second Thursday, monthly)

Thursday, July 8, 2021 at 6 PM PDT – 8 PM PDT

Come out for a BIPOC community-focused event where we will ride through the streets of Tacoma. These rides are free events. Bikes will be provided to those in need for the duration of the ride. Helmets and masks required. No one gets left behind on these rides and they are led and swept by POC 2nd Cycle Staff. These rides are ridden as a casual pace, you should be able to hold a conversation with the rider next to you.

 

The mission of these rides is to create space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the bicycle community and industry while dismantling the barriers that keep folx from participating in the activity/sport.

The vision is to create access, community, and a movement of uplifting each other, through the joy of riding a bike.

Ride starts and ends at the shop.

BIPOC Open Shop Night (fourth Thursday, monthly)

Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 6 PM PDT – 8 PM PDT

2nd Cycle is a safe space for BIPOC folx to learn bike maintenance and safety. While other bike maintenance classes (and cycling in general) are usually white-dominated and have enrollment fees, this gathering will be free to folks that are melanated.
Pull up to our shop to fix and tune up your pedaling machine! These are free events with the exception of new or used parts required to get your bicycle fixed or tuned up. This reoccurring event will be facilitated by POC 2nd Cycle mechanics that will assist you with any bike-related needs! If no assistance is needed, then wrench on!
Our goal for this event is to build community and relationships with BIPOC bike riders to make them feel confident to ride and fix their bikes more often.
We hope to learn that providing safe space for those directly marginalized through indirect means, such as gentrification & racial wealth gap, fosters inclusive community and a voice to those usually not given a voice in this industry or sport.
