“It is good to belong! Building a community of queer folks inside the community of cyclists in VT creates a space for folks to ride without having to hide/closet or be quiet about their queerness, which for many of us is a big and important part of our identity.
Why Pride Rides? For diversity, inclusion, and representation of LGBTQIA+ folks on bikes, because barriers to inclusion for LGBTQIA+ folks still exist.”
Kris leads mountain bike, fatbike, and wild whackadoo adventure rides for Vermont Bicycle Club.
Kris also leads rides with a focus on expanding inclusivity for all LGBTQIA+ people with the goal of providing a safe space for new riders as well as experienced riders with the goal to expand inclusivity to bicycling in Vermont.
