London-based cycling club the Black Cyclists Network have surpassed their £10,000 fundraising goal, which will go towards setting up the first British domestic racing team for black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) riders in the 2021 season.

Set up last week, the GoFundMe fundraiser has reached over £12,000 and is still rising. As well as setting up a racing team, the money will also be used to develop an outreach program to encourage beginners to take up the sport and to fund events to raise awareness about diversity.
