Cycling is often seen as a sport that is exclusive to white people, however the actual reasons behind this may surprise you. Cycling is a sport that requires a certain level of wealth to be able to participate, as the cost of the gear and equipment needed can be expensive. Additionally, many cycling events are held in more affluent, predominantly white areas and are marketed towards this demographic. Finally, cycling culture is often seen as a male-dominated sport, which further contributes to the idea of it being a ‘white sport’. Despite this, cycling is becoming increasingly popular across all demographics and is a great way to get fit, have fun and explore the world around you.
