Hello users of /r/cycling, We the mod team want to first acknowledge the amazing protests that are being led by black, indigenous, and people of color who are doing far harder work than we will ever have to do moderating a subreddit. Protestors do not deserve the treatment they are getting, peaceful protests do not work when the cops are the ones starting the violence. Black lives matter. We are a largely white moderating team. What does that mean? That we are all still learning to be anti-racist but hopefully these steps will get us even a tiny bit closer to a world where protests like the ones that are happening will not need to. What does that mean for this subreddit? We have always tried to moderate through the lens of anti-racism but we are not perfect and still have work to do. For right now it means that any posts that have to do with the protests will be moderated using a similar criteria to the Bad Faith Participation rule that [r/BlackPeopleTwitter](https://www.reddit.com/r/BlackPeopleTwitter/) uses: [https://www.reddit.com/r/BlackPeopleTwitter/wiki/bfp](https://www.reddit.com/r/BlackPeopleTwitter/wiki/bfp) and you will not get a warning before being banned. Those posts are also not the place for your jokes. We will still be banning for racism in any comment/post. >"But bikes have nothing to do with politics/racism/systemic violence/etc.” The ability to ignore politics is a privilege and ignoring politics is ignoring suffering. You have always been able to see yourself represented as a “cyclist” in media/advertising/racing. You do not have to think about what neighbourhood you might be riding through. You do not have to double check that your bell works incase you get stopped. You do not worry about someone thinking you stole the bike you’re on. Your neighbourhood has bike lanes. We can’t even begin to list all of the ways that riding a bike intersects with politics/racism/systemic violence/etc. Biking while black is a real thing.

I’ve been cycling the same trail, three days a week, for the last 7 years, and never once have I had this happen. While waiting for the crossing signal to allow me priority passage across the crosswalk this driver wanting to make a right turn was signaling me to cross. I gestured toward the crossing signal to let her know I was waiting for it to change, to which she raised her hand and nodded telling me she understood. After the walk signal turned on and I started to cross, at the same time, the driver began to cross the crosswalk and make her right turn (there was also a light-up “no right turn” sign ON) nearly hitting me; to which I responded with a confused look and the double hands up “what the heck” gesture. I saw the obvious embarrassment on her face as she drove off and I continued my ride. This was the first time in my 7 I’ve had that type of encounter! And surprising enough, on that same ride at a different intersection, the same thing happened; Waiting for the crosswalk signal, driver tells me to go, I point to the crosswalk, and the driver nearly hits me as I have priority! This was honestly an important and specific lesson learned here; while I’m pretty vigilant when it comes to reading the faces of drivers as I encounter them and acting accordingly, I let my guard down because I had a personal exchange with them in regards to me crossing the road. So I guess the takeaway for me is even if all the signs are saying you have priority AND it seems safe you still need to be cautious and vigilant about the drivers around you.
