Anthony Taylor is working to make bicycling more accessible to people of color in the Twin Cities.

He's a local activist and member of The League of American Bicyclist's Equity Advisory Council.

In 2013, the council released a report, "The New Majority: Pedaling Toward Equity" and Taylor shared this thoughts on the report here.

Taylor believes the report "is an impressive first step to embrace equity and to acknowledge that matters of transportation have been historically inequitable."

He spoke about that inequality with co-hosts Doualy Xaykaothao and Tom Weber.

Correction (Sept. 29, 2017): An earlier version of this story was incorrect in the release date and name of the report, "The New Majority: Pedaling Toward Equity." The story has been updated.
