Other Bike Organizations We Respect!
Red, Bike and Green
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.
P.O.K.E.R. Bicycle Familia
Bicycling has been long been thought of as some kind of bougie or hipster or "white" thing. And the reality is, although there ARE folks of color who ride, we often find ourselves feeling alone in many of the organized (or unorganized) group rides that happen in the Bay and elsewhere. This is where the idea of the P.O.K.E.R ride came about. To create a space for people of color to ride, have fun, promote active health, and in the process, build community.

Street Level Health Project
Street Level Health Project’s model for closing the gap in health care access for low-income, recently immigrated communities is three-fold: 1) bringing health care to the community through our Health Access Program; 2) tightening the link between individuals and community health clinics through our Navigator Empowerment Program; and 3) addressing the root causes of poor health by strengthening and empowering individuals and communities to be healthy through our Health Education and Leadership Program.
