Black Lives Matter.

Cycling community, please listen, activate & make change happen.

The Black is Beautiful ride was a wonderful celebration of Milwaukee cyclists. Thank you to the organizers – please coordinate more community rides!

This would also be a fantastic spot for a pop-up RW24-style dance party so any sound systems and DJs are most welcome.

Lots of amazing professional artists creating BLM posters & murals & stickers – a freeform art fair may allow us to support these artists directly?

Does anyone have a map of the RW street art installations? Maybe a fun bonus lap opportunity?

Love Milwaukee actively

Ride Bikes

Wear a mask

Don’t be a Jerk

note: the ~ Art In Protest ~ Bonus RW24-style Checkpoint has not been sanctioned or approved by the Riverwest24 organizing committee. I did not even ask them for permission. Please respect the race, keep friends healthy, and stop at stop signs.
