History of the Major Taylor Cycling Club
In the summer of 2004, Mario C. Browne, Project Director and Stephen M. Thomas, (then Director) for of the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Minority Health (CMH) and Kenny Pratt, a local Barber began leisurely Sunday afternoon bicycle rides in the East End of Pittsburgh. At that same time, CMH was developing community-based interventions to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities of chronic, preventable disease among African American and other racial minorities in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
While working on the “Healthy Black Family Project”, bicycling proved many benefits to reducing health risks and forming a bicycle club would facilitate a way to organize activities and create a social support network for the community. In July 2004, Mario Browne, Stephen Thomas, William E. Snyder, Jr., Kenny Pratt, Darrell Williams, and Tim Younger; a.k.a “The Core Six” formed the Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club (PMTCC) dedicated to bringing the joy and health benefits of recreational cycling to Pittsburgh’s inner city urban neighborhoods.
The cycling club was named after African American Cyclist, Marshall “Major” Taylor, a turn of the century world cycling champion who broke and set multiple racing records, while fighting racial prejudice and overcoming boundaries in the US in the early- 1900s, despite the discrimination and treatment he received on the cycling track. The use of Major Taylor as the club icon and namesake was intentional to create a culturally tailored health promotion intervention.
