Although I’ve ridden bikes since I was 7 years old, I didn’t become a safe minded cyclist in 2006. that’s when I witnesses a fatal car/bike accident a long ride. That accident, along with the lack of black and women voices in the local bike community, prompted me to join the local bike action committee. In 2014, I worked with a few friends to create the facebook activity group “LFB-Charlotte: Leave Fear Behind”. This group is dedicated to Charlotte female cyclist. It was also created to give Black women a voice in this lifestyle as well. In 2018, I became a League Certified Instructor and in 2019, I became a Cycling Savvy Instructor. I most currently rolled off the Charlotte Bicycle Advisory Committee but still work hard to ensure all voices in this city are heard when it comes to safe cycling infrastructure. In addition to advocating safe biking for all people.
