About the Major Taylor Project
Named after African-American world champion cyclist Marshall “Major” Taylor, the Major Taylor Project (MTP) is an outreach by the Cascade Bicycle Club aimed at empowering youth through bicycling. At after-school bicycling clubs MTP students explore their communities, build confidence, and discover their power to effect change.
The Major Taylor Project reaches more than 500 youth annually in central and south King County and in Pierce County. In these areas, residents speak over 70 languages and represent over 80 nationalities. Club locations are intentionally established to reach youth in low-income and diverse neighborhoods. The Major Taylor Project has established after school clubs at over a dozen schools in the south end, including Highline, Evergreen, Foster and Tyee High Schools.
The B-Town/Major Taylor Criterium is volunteer-run by the Liquid Velo Cycling Team. We are committed to making it an annual event not to be missed, by racers, visitors, and Burien locals alike.
