Bike.POC is about sharing our love of bikes, but more importantly, it’s about creating an intentional space for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and other marginalized people to come together in a space free of racism and misogyny, where we can support each other and share our stories.

Bea Apple and Kim Seay started BIKE.POC in 2021 with a BIPOC Solidarity Ride in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. Their collaborative efforts aim to break down barriers and pave the way for a more equitable and accessible future for everyone.

Fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cycling and active transportation worlds by advocating for policy changes, building public awareness, and empowering marginalized communities to create an inclusive built environment.

Arkansas: Hidden Gems

In Arkansas, just about everyone you meet is into the outdoors, yet to many outside the state it barely registers as an outdoor destination. Now, it’s on a mission to earn recognition as a wild mecca. Baratunde heads south to find out why this hidden gem has stayed hidden for so long, and how its outdoor culture is changing.

While biking on the Delta Heritage Trail, Baratunde stops in Elaine, Arkansas to talk about their history and how they are using the outdoors to heal.


BIKE.POC is currently appling for 501C3 status after operating as an initiative of Trailblazers from 2021-2023.
