American Bicyclist, May/June 2012

Excerpt: Davis, a local planner and engineer, was riding through a predominately African-American housing complex when she heard a shout: 'Mommy, look at the black lady on a bike!' a young girl exclaimed. For a moment Davis was taken aback. 'The is an area with bike lanes, so I know there are bicyclists,' she says. 'But I had the realization that, I looked like her and she was very excited to see someone who looked like her riding a bike.'"
