John Shackleford is a 25-year-old bike messenger from NYC. Dude clearly loves bikes and credits them with saving his life. Now, he’s touring another lifesaver—the Underground Railroad. Shackleford, and his team of fellow Black cyclists, are hitting the road to see what life is like in former slave states, to increase the visibility of riders of color, and to have an adventure over 1,100 miles of riding. Check out their website to see more and to help out, if so inclined.
