The bicycle company, Trek, is organizing a national Pride Ride for Sunday, June 27th. On that day over 78 bike shops around the country will host individual Pride Rides for their local communities in order to foster more diversity and inclusion in the world of biking.
“Bikes are for everyone and we want to create a community and a sport where all people feel welcomed, supported, and celebrated,” said Eric Bjorling, of Trek Bicycle. “This event is for everyone who shares a passion for riding and enjoys one of the best things on earth—a bike ride with friends on a beautiful summer day.”
Better yet, to celebrate Pride Month, Trek will also be making donations to 25 LGBTQ organizations around the country, including Stonewall Columbus, Utah Pride Center, and OUTMemphis. Trek’s donations will total $75,000.
From New York City to Pasadena, and even Little Rock, Arkansas, Trek is setting up Pride Rides across America. There’s no need to pre-register for attendance. Simply come as you are, and enjoy a bike ride to celebrate Pride. You can find a full list of Pride Ride locations on Trek’s website.
According to the company, participating local Trek stores will also provide more information about the ride start time, ride route and start/finish line via a Facebook event on their Facebook pages. Participating cyclists will also receive an exclusive 2021 Trek Pride Ride t-shirt, featuring the 13 color Pride rainbow flag, while supplies last.
