About Us

Black Women Bike is a sponsored project of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. While others use the name Black Women Bike, we do not have any affiliates or chapters at this time. We own the rights to the name “Black Women Bike” and the logo.

Black Women Bike was founded in May 2011 during a twitter conversation between Nse Ufot, Najeema Washington, and Veronica O. Davis. They started using #BlackWomenBike to convey a strong message that Black women bike to health, recreation, wellness and transportation. They started a Facebook group as a way to connect with other women. The rest, as they say, is history.

Our vision is that Black women and girls of all ages ride their bikes for fun, health, wellness and transportation.

The mission of Black Women Bike is to build community and interest in biking among black women through education, advocacy and recreation.
