It reminds me of the “bike to work” movement. That is also portrayed as white, but in my city more than half of the people on bike are not white. I was once talking to a white activist who was photographing “bike commuters” and had only pictures of white people with the occasional “Black professional” I asked her why she didn’t photograph the delivery people, construction workers etc. … ie. the Black and [Latin@] and Asian people… and she mumbled something about trying to “improve the image of biking” then admitted that she didn’t really see them as part of the “green movement” since they “probably have no choice” –

I was so mad I wanted to quit working on the project she and I were collaborating on.

So, in the same way when people in a poor neighborhood grow food in their yards … it’s just being poor– but when white people do it they are saving the earth or something.

I’m always frustrated with how cycling is portrayed v what I see in my everyday life.  It’s impossible to justify why pro cycling is SO white, esp compared to other sports across Europe, but every time I see cycling campaigns just dismissing whole swathes of the population - and I do in the UK, too - it seems stupid & lazy.

There was SO MUCH racing last week!  Dan and I talked about it all in our latest women’s cycling podcast.  Dan describes it:

Podcast 2014 – Episode 30 – The EEEE

Holy moly there’s a whole lot of racing to talk about this week! Hot on the heels of the Giro Rosa came Thüringen Rundfahrt, the Tour de Bretagne and new stage race the BeNe Ladies Tour. We cover all the stages in all the races and note several outstanding achievements, including Trixi Worrack and Evie Stevens racing Thüringen and the Giro Rosa back to back, stringing together 17 consecutive days of racing before they were done, and the results of several of the smaller teams in the peloton who definitely maximised their chances to shine. We also take a few moments to talk about #WomensCyclingWeek and (spoiler!) Sarah might have feelings about this one. But it’s all a lead in to the Commonwealth Games starting (which is kind of a big deal if you’re from a Commonwealth country, sort of like the Olympics because we can’t wait a whole 4 years to win more medals) and La Course by the Tour De France on Sunday (which is being televised live pretty much everywhere and therefore will be fucking amazing!). And after we talk about all of that, there’s the usual rundown of blogs, videos, tweets and various other odds and ends we saw. In other words, brace yourselves, this one’s big!
