Major Taylor Bicycle Club hosts family ride at Juneteenth celebration
Last Saturday, the Major Taylor Bicycling Club (a non-profit social/recreational bicycling club geared toward the African-American communities in Minneapolis and St. Paul) hosted a “family ride” for all ages along the Mississippi River. More than 50 bicyclists rode along the river and into north Minneapolis, enjoying a wonderful morning (before the rain arrived later that day).
Below are a few photos from the event.
The ride started at the North Mississippi Regional Park.
Bike Walk Ambassadors were on hand to lend a hand, especially with the younger riders.
Helmets and bicycles were available for those who needed one for the ride.
The Major Taylor Bicycling Club members are easy to spot with these t-shirts.
Even a few younger cyclists made the ride on Saturday morning.
Anthony Taylor (no relation to Major Taylor) kicked off the ride at North Mississippi Regional Park.
Cyclists prepare to begin the family ride.
And, we're off!
