A new report from the League of American Bicyclists and the Sierra Club is challenging a tenacious racial stereotype about people who ride bicycles.

"We wanted to dispel one of the major misconceptions, which is that bicycling is just for young, white, urban professionals," says Carolyn Szczepanski, director of communications at LAB. "This report starts to shift that general misconception of who is riding."
