Registration Now Open: 2024 Kittie Knox Ride

Join MassBike and coalition partners on Sunday, June 9, 2024, for the third annual Kittie Knox Ride! This community bike ride around Boston, Cambridge, Watertown, and Waltham features the history of Katherine “Kittie” Knox, a bi-racial woman cyclist and barrier-breaker in the 1890s.

Riders will learn about Kittie as a bicycling pioneer and we’ll ride and reflect on issues we’re facing today in terms of racial and gender representation in bicycling and advocacy. A historical site summary will be provided for this ride by NECCD (New England Cycling Coalition for Diversity).

Last year we had 90 bicyclists join us for this celebration of Kittie Knox and the Riverside Cycling Club and we're looking forward to sharing Kittie's story with even more riders this year.

Support the Kittie Knox Plays

This is a free event, but donations to The Kittie Knox Plays are encouraged. We're working with Plays in Place to bring Kittie's story to life in a series of one-act plays by playwrights Patrick Gabridge, Claire Gardner, and Kirsten Greenidge. Creating a vehicle for multi-racial school, college, and community theater groups, along with bicycling clubs, to stage theatrical performances that reflect on the history of race and gender around the topic of bicycling. The Kittie Knox Ride will enable us to continue our fundraising campaign for this effort.
