NPR: How A Minority Biking Group Raises The Profile Of Cycling

This is a pretty interesting (and short read) about the changing face of cycling. I'd add that some of us aren't necessarily "cyclists" or even "enthusiasts" but just want to be people who sometimes ride in cars, sometimes take public transportation, sometimes walk, and sometimes just want to ride a bike. It's transportation, it's fitness, it's fun in the park. It doesn't have to be a movement or anything political.
