Diversity In Cycling

Diversity In Cycling was conceived as a collaborative grass roots project to better understand the lack of black and Asian diversity in cycling and particularly in cycling clubs. The project grew through word of mouth, eventually attracting the attention of governing body British Cycling who helped distribute the report to its members and more broadly. We provided the launch event to a pack audience of cyclists of all backgrounds back in June 2019. Please Read, Share and Act on the Diversity in Cycling report.
