Major Motion Was formed in 1975 in Southwest Los Angeles. The name Major Motion was inspired by Marshall “Major” Taylor, a pioneer in American cycling.
Major Taylor was an African American cyclist who won many races, including the 1899 one mile World Championship in Montreal. It was unprecedented for an American to achieve that level of performance, as professional cycling at the turn of the century was dominated by Europeans.
We are providing a new branch to Major Motion Cycling in the Los Angeles County area. This branch rides will originate from The Ladera Center and Long Beach Cyclery. These area and the surrounding neighborhoods have no idea that this kind of riding is available to them. We aim to change that.
About us: We are a group of bicyclists who enjoy the pleasure of riding with friends and family. We are not racers, and we welcome people of all abilities. We offer easy, moderate and difficult rides. We seek to involve everyone who loves cycling and want to provide the means by which the members can become better cyclists.
