Cycling provides independence for people with disabilities so we’re celebrating with a ride on the Major Taylor Trail.
Join us on Juneteenth as we pedal through the Dan Ryan Woods to Whistler Woods. We’ll pass a mural that tells the story of Major Taylor, a famous African-American professional bicycle racer in the early 20th Century, challenged the racial prejudice he encountered on and off the track, becoming a role model for other athletes facing racial discrimination.
The trail is 7.6 miles long and everyone can find their own path. After the ride, enjoy a BBQ hosted by the Envision Unlimited Culinary Program participants while relaxing in the Van J. Voorhees Garden at Frick Center. Plenty of free parking available.
