Bike Pittsburgh’s annual Women & Biking Forum aims to empower women

through bicycling, and this year’s keynote speaker perfectly exemplifies this


Victoria Robinson has grown the first chapter of Black Girls Do Bike, located in

Central Florida, from three women to a community of over 200 women.

Black Girls Do Bike was founded by Monica Garrison in 2013 when she

wanted to create a safe comfortable space online where women, and

especially women of color, could discuss or discover their passion for cycling. 

Victoria Robinson–an 1,100 mile bike ride away–was seeking to do the

same thing when she found Monica and BGDB online.

“Black Girls Do Bike extended my life! Monica’s vision of desiring to

see more women on bikes, minority women on bikes, helped me

recover from heart failure.”

About three years ago when Victoria wanted to begin cycling with

other people, she found that most cycling organizations were geared towards

men and was unable to identify a group that was willing to incorporate beginner

cyclists. This inspired her to start her own cycling group, and with the

discovery of the Black Girls Do Bike concept

and branding, she ran with it. “Monica is such an inspiration to me.”

Victoria and her BGDB chapter became an inspiration to not just women of

color, but also children of color as they showed representation of black

women on bikes.

We hope Victoria will be a great inspiration to you, too. Join BikePGH

and 100 other women on Saturday April 1st for a transformational day,

opening with keynote speaker

and BGDB “Shero” Victoria Robinson. Victoria’s message to all women,

especially women of color, is to ride one or many miles, but keep moving.
