Major Taylor Cycling Club of Little Rock (“Rock City Riders”) was formed in March of 2011 as a locally organized chapter of the Major Taylor National Association, Inc.
The MTCCLR is a cycling group comprised of over 70 cyclists of diverse experience and skill levels. Although the Club’s primary focus is in road bicycling, many members are multi-sports enthusiasts who participate in other sports and events, such as mountain biking, tennis, duathlons, triathlons, and marathons. The Club encourages and promotes physical fitness through other sports as well as road bicycling by entering teams in various events throughout the year.
The MTCCLR encourages and promotes safe, courteous, and smart riding habits. The Club volunteers in providing educational tutoring for grade levels 3-12 regarding the history of Marshall W. “Major” Taylor, who in 1899 became the first African-American world champion in bicycling and the first African-American world champion in any sport.
The MTCCLR also seeks out charitable opportunities for its membership. In partnership with other non-profit organizations in the central Arkansas area, MTCCLR presented its inaugural “Cycles for Christmas” program in December 2012 to provide bicycles and helmets for non-profit organizations that serve youth and children.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of ARORA, the Arkansas Minority Health Commission, Chainwheel, Inc., and Wright Fitness Resort, the MTCCLR will continue to serve the Arkansas community in honor of Major Taylor.
