"NYC's most meaningful and stylish bike ride." -Vogue Magazine, 2021
Inspired by Maya Angelou's poem, Still I Rise, Marz Lovejoy created her annual bike ride, celebrating Black Women, ...And Still We Ride... out of passion and love. ASWR started in 2020 as an act of resistance and power. Since it began, ASWR has collectively raised approx. $15k for organizations centered on Black Women's health, including Mama Glow, Black Women's Blueprint, and Glits Inc.
As an avid cyclist, Marz aims to make biking and wellness fashionable and more accessible to her community.
