Members of the Cycling4Diversity team – which provides opportunities for learning, dialogue and discussions on the benefits of cultural diversity and the importance of eliminating racism – rode from Victoria to Abbotsford from May 21-24. The team visited 14 cities, including Surrey, and spoke at many schools during the four-day tour.
Cycling4Diversity (C4D) unites multicultural communities through the sharing of personal experiences, which creates an environment of mutual trust and understanding. The C4D team works to bridge cultural communities and create dialogue, breaking down perceived barriers.
The C4D team seeks to foster intercultural relationships by encouraging students and citizens to expand their circle of friends by connecting with people from various backgrounds, showing respect for differences, and encouraging inclusion in schools and communities.
Cycling4Diversity began in 2011 to celebrate World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development on May 21st, a day proclaimed by the United Nations.
Cycling4Diversity Week in British Columbia was celebrated from May 19 to 25. For more information, visit www.cycling4diversity.ca
