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).

    I love this!

    Do you have a group in LA?

      No. We are looking to connect with other cities though. Stay Tuned.

    I read an article about your group in Momentum’s Sept/Oct 2011 edition. I was so inspired. Our family loves the outdoors and my husband and I are in the process of teaching our 3 year old daughter how to ride a bike. We can’t wait to take family bike rides together. I wish I could find an organization like this near us in Birmingham, AL. Maybe we should just move to Oakland! Keep up the great work!
