BRAIN apologizes for phrases in Guest Editorial

Published April 8, 2019
We’ve removed the phrases from the web posting.

On behalf of BRAIN I’d like to apologize for a phrase that appeared twice in a Guest Editorial published in our April 1 print issue and on our website this week. The phrase, which appeared twice in the column, was offensive and unacceptable and we regret that it survived our editing process. We will make every effort in the future to create a publication and website that is inclusive, welcoming, and reflects and celebrates the diversity of our cycling industry. 

We’ve removed the phrases from the web posting, which we will keep posted as we still feel the Guest Editorial itself merits discussion. 

I am at the Bicycle Leadership Conference and Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California, this week. Anyone who would like to discuss this with me can reach out in person, or via email, phone or social media.
