IRE Radio Podcast | Biking While Black

When Tampa Bay Times reporters Alexandra Zayas and Kameel Stanley got their hands on state and local data about bike tickets, they found some sobering statistics. Tampa police were stopping bicyclists at an alarming rate. And eight out of 10 of the bicyclists ticketed were black. 

It’s a great story, and even if your coverage area isn’t handing out bike tickets like candy, this is one that could be replicated in communities across the country. So grab a notebook. On this episode, Alex and Kameel walk us through how they made it happen.

As always, you can find us on SoundcloudiTunes and Stitcher. If you have a story you think we should feature on the show, drop us a note at We’d love to hear from you.
