Selma50... If They Could Walk, We Can Ride!
The Montgomery Bike Club held a 50th Anniversary Ride to commemorate the Selma to Montgomery Voter Rights March, an act of defiance against the widespread discrimination and violence faced by African Americans trying to vote in the 1950s and 60s. The march influenced and ultimately led to Lyndon B. Johnson’s 1965 signing of the Voting Rights Act. 330 Cyclists from 25 states were in attendance of this monumental occasion - Iron Riders Dallas... Cycling Club, D.R.A.F.T, Black Girls Do Bike Austin and Houston, Houston Ladies Cycling Club, Major Taylor Cycling Club Little Rock - Rock City Riders and Metro Atlanta Cycling Club~MACC to name a few. This was an awesome, once in a lifetime event! #onward
