Black Women Bike (BWB) was founded in 2011 over a twitter conversation between three friends. Four years later the organization has grown to over 1,500 women in the District of Columbia Region. BWB was formed in a perfect storm of racial tensions, a Mayoral race, and a journalist peddling the idea that bicycling was for white people only. This is the BWB story, what they have achieved, and what’s next.
