Team Tacoma Major Taylor Project

The Major Taylor Project is proud to once again be riding in the Wheels to Meals ride in support of the St. Leo Food Connection's emergency food programs. The ride is a chance for our team members to be part of a great community event,and to give the larger a community a chance to donate in their name.

(MTP) empowers youth from diverse communities through bicycling. In MTP after-school clubs, students establish healthy habits, build relationships, gain confidence and discover their ability to affect positive change. 

And during summer months, many MTP students go further than they thought possible — testing their skills, experience and perseverance — by biking 206 miles from Seattle to Portland on the annual STP. 

What we do

  • Offer weekly bike rides after school so students can explore their community
  • Deliver bicycle safety and maintenance education
  • Provide opportunities to elevate youth voices and inspire students to advocate for change in their community
  • Expose students to various cycling disciplines, including: touring, urban riding, track racing, mountain biking and cyclocross racing
  • Offer an eight-week Build-a-Bike program to increase ownership of bikes
  • Provide training opportunities for students to prepare for Cascade events

Who we serve

The Major Taylor Project reaches more than 500 youth annually in middle and high schools in central and south King County and in Pierce County. In these areas, residents speak over 70 languages and represent over 80 nationalities. Our club locations are intentionally established to reach youth in low-income and diverse neighborhoods.
