BCNxCAMS

We are proud to finally announce Black Cyclists Network’s new partnership with CAMS for 2021.

CAMS will be supporting BCN with the loan of two amazing vehicles.

An incredible Mercedes estate and a team van will help our riders get to races across the country, making racing more accessible for those that usually wouldn’t get the opportunity.

Who are CAMS you might ask?
Well, CAMS are an amazing company dedicated to helping cyclists get back on the road after an accident.

Multiple members of BCN, including our very own founder @blackcyclist, have used CAMS’ services to help them get back on the road after accidents that were not their fault.

With the ability to help you get your bike repaired or replaced after an accident, as well as getting the compensation you deserve, CAMS offer a wide range of services that can help make life a little easier when then unexpected happens.

BCN announced today its intention to create the first amateur British domestic racing team for BAME riders to compete in the 2021 season.
The team currently boasts a roster of nine riders made up of an Elite rider, four cat 2 and four cat 3 athletes – with an aim to deliver a competitive team of 10 riders.

London based cycling club BCN (The Black Cyclists Network) was established in 2018 to address the lack of diversity and representation in UK cycling across all levels, grassroots to professional.
Currently boasting over 100 members it is one of the fastest growing and vibrant clubs in the UK, redefining the face of club riding.

BCN founder Mani Arthur said “BCN is more than a club. We are a community built to address the lack of representation in the cycling world.
There are a lot of cyclists from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds in the UK and around the world yet very few resources cater for our communities.
With the launch of the BCN team we aim to give much needed visibility to people of colour in the sport to inspire and engage a new audience to the physical, mental and social benefits of cycling.”

Alongside a race team, BCN ambitions stretch to grassroots cycling setting its sights on community participation, to include an outreach program for beginners and pathways for young talent to chase their cycling dreams.
