Adventure Cycling Association is a nonprofit organization promoting self-supported long-distance bicycle touring. Our mission is to inspire people of all ages to travel by bicycle helping cyclists explore the landscapes and history of America for fitness, fun, and self-discovery. In collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Minority Health (CMH), our next route will be a corridor of the Underground Railroad. For Americans, tracing the trail of slaves escaping to freedom will bring awareness about a key cross-cultural struggle in our history, present an opportunity to heal emotional and psychological wounds from the past, and exemplify the triumphs and bravery of Americans, both black and white, who risked their own safety for the freedom of others. This route will create a cultural heritage corridor that will be preserved for our nation’s citizens. CMH and Adventure Cycling share the goal of encouraging people from all cultural backgrounds, to explore the landscapes and history of America by bicycle. The organizations created this partnership in recognition of the capacity for bicycle travel to build stronger cross-cultural relationships among our nation’s citizens while promoting lifelong health through a form of physical activity available to people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
