Mission

Red, Bike and Green is a community-building collective of Black urban cyclists seeking to improve the physical and mental health, economy and local environment of African Americans by creating a relevant and sustainable Black bike culture.

History

Founded in the fall of 2007 by Jenna Burton, Red, Bike and Green (RBG) started as a small group of Black urban cyclists in Oakland, Ca.  After notifying a few friends of her dream to create a Black cyclists group, Jenna Burton soon drafted the 3 Point Plan; giving this cycling group a deep social purpose.  After several rides for over a year, Jenna and the group felt it was imperative to outreach and organize and make the prospects of RBG a reality. RBG officially launched in early 2010  (see pictures from that ride here).
