The club is named in honor of Marshall W “Major” Taylor, a pioneer in American cycling. Arguably the fastest rider in the United States from roughly 1897 to 1900, and who in 1899, became the world’s second black champion athlete, after boxer George Dixon. The club is inspired by the principals set forth by Marshall “Major” Taylor whose greatest struggle was with “that monster prejudice.”
Major Taylor Cycling Club San Diego is a culturally diverse cycling club open to all who wish to join.
