Diversity cyclists tour five Mission schools

The special one-day tour was organized in response to the recent Ku Klux Klan literature and racial slur incidents that recently occurred

Ken Herar and members of his Cycling4Diversity team travelled to five Mission schools last week to spread the message of diversity.

The special one-day tour was organized in response to the recent Ku Klux Klan literature and racial slur incidents that occurred in Mission and Abbotsford.

“We wanted to speak to kids about the importance of diversity and the importance of inclusion and providing examples of what not to do,” said Herar.

Eight riders participated in the event that saw them ride to different schools and interact with students.

“I found a lot of students were very passionate about wanting to make our community work,” Herar said.

He said they delivered a strong message, and plans for an Abbotsford ride are in the works.
