White people, especially wealthier white people, are more likely than people of color to choose bikes over other modes of transportation.

Why is that, and how can we change that equation?

It's partly because minorities perceive cycling as a white activity and not for them.

Anthony Taylor, co-founder of the Major Taylor Bicycling Club of Minnesota, joins the Pedal Hubbers to discuss how issues of access, cost, safety, and comfort are impeding minorities from benefiting from biking.
