I’m a big fan of the BlackGirlsDoBike.com movement so I knew couldn’t leave Pittsburgh without meeting and interviewing the creator of BGDB, Monica Garrison! I invited her to come down to the Stars N Stripes Nationals to check out BMX racing scene and to meet the incredible Miss Kitty as well as the other riders on the scene. We were having such a good time that I almost forgot to get my interview with her lol!! Hopefully when I come back to Pittsburgh I can get her to ride the BMX track…stay tuned! 🙂
