‘Who’s not out here?’ Melanin in Motion is on a mission to get more people outdoors

Founder Anthony Taylor organizes summer bike rides and winter skiing and snowboarding classes to draw Minnesotans of color into outdoor sports.

Summer or winter, Anthony Taylor is looking for ways he can create more opportunities for people of color to get out and participate in recreational sports that have historically lacked diversity.

A long-time sportsman, Taylor has played his part in founding programs offering Minnesotans outdoor gatherings centered around community and health. Whether he’s teaching new snowboarders or planning long-haul bike trips, it’s all part of Taylor’s goal to create a welcoming space in sports.
