New York City-based cycling club, Major Taylor Iron Riders, is raising money for the Legal Defense Fund with Black Lives Matter kits.

(Lincoln, NE) - Major Taylor Iron Riders (MTIR) designed a kit collection inspired by their namesake and Black Lives Matters in collaboration with Champion System USA to push for meaningful change worldwide.

The pre-order sales will benefit the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, an organization combating the lack of legal support, advocacy, and public education for BIPOC citizens. Staying steadfast in the climate of racial unrest throughout the country, MTIR is harnessing their voices to push for meaningful change worldwide with the kit collection.

“The kit says it all. I want to see it go to newer heights and bigger heights. If someone supports the change that’s happening in our country and they’re a cyclist, they can be a part of this,” shares Dereka Hendon-Barnes, MTIR Club President.

Designs created by club members Andrew Harris and Seitu Barnes are available in Champion System’s Tech Pro ($75) and Performance Summer Jerseys ($115) with matching bibs, accessories, outerwear, and custom casual wear.

The entire collection is now available for pre-order and is scheduled for a November delivery
