In the last year, Radical Adventure Riders (RAR) chapters around the United States have launched community gear libraries, hosted gravel camps, provided skill-sharing clinics, and more to help get a growing number people on bikes. They’re now looking for help to expand to 20 chapters across the country. Learn more and donate here…
We’ve been following the Radical Adventure Riders (RAR) and the incredible work they’ve been doing to lead the cycling and outdoor worlds toward gender inclusivity and racial equity since they were founded in 2017. In that time, they’ve created 11 local chapters; directly supported Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) cyclists who are trans, women, intersex, and/or genderqueer (TWIG) riders through the SJ Brooks Scholarship; published the Get Rad Be Radical publication to share experiences from around their community; hosted engaging discussions through their six-part Within & Without podcast; launched the Cycling Industry Pledge; and more.
Building on years of creating successful programs to uplift people throughout their community, they’re now asking for help with their mission of growing local RAR chapters to 20 locations around the United States. They want to get even more folks on bikes by doubling the number of locations in the RAR Chapter program and focusing on supporting a diverse array of riders at the grassroots level. They’ll do this by providing stipends to individual chapters to help offset the costs of getting started, hosting rides, and furnishing cycling and camping gear for members. Further, RAR will also provide resources and expertise for co-managers of each chapter.
At the time of writing, they’ve raised just over $2,300 of their $40,000 goal, and they could use donations of any amount to help expand their chapters to new cities around the country. You can make a donation at GiveButter.com.
