Community Cycling 2019 is a local event organized by Don and some local minority cyclists. The event started at a local park on 136th and Gramercy in the City of Garden. This bike race occurred on Sunday August 18, 2019 and was designed to show young kids in the local area that there are black and other minority semi-pro and professional cyclists.
