RideTogether Database Aims to Connect BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and WTF Cyclists

Finding new riding partners is never a straightforward process, and can be even more challenging for underrepresented groups within our community. The Ride Together Club wants to change that. The freshly launched networking website aims to connect BIPOC, LGBTQ+, women, trans, and femme cyclists (WTF) through a safe and secure platform. Their goal is to make mountain, gravel, and road biking a more diverse and accessible sport through an interactive map that shows ride partners in your area. Each riding partner has provided a bit of information about themselves and where they like to ride. Once you find someone who seems like a good fit, you just have to follow up with the contact information they’ve provided, and then it's time to ride!

The interactive map allows you to search for riding members in your area. The RideTogether Club screenshot.

Their hope is that users can utilize the platform to make new friends, find like-minded groups to ride with, and meet individuals interested in the same adventures as you. Becoming a riding partner is simple. There’s a short intake form to fill out, and then you’re good to go. If you’re not interested in sharing your information over the website not to worry. You can still connect with riding partners without having to sign up.
