2019 Honoring Greatness Marshall “Major” Taylor

Members are doing great things in the community by educating our youth about a hero they may otherwise never have heard of Marshall Major Taylor a black man! He was an 1899 World Champion, an unsung hero no more. We honor him every year with a ride to celebrate his life, but members are taking it a step further this year!
