How Riding A Bike Taught Me About Prejudice

BY ANDREW KURJATA
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 18, 2014

How does a straight, white male living in North America experience prejudice? He gets on a bike. Andrew Kurjata, a bicyclist by convenience means and not by enthusiast means, just wants to ride his bicycle. However, he quickly learns that riding your bike, in a highly car dominated culture, is an inherently political act.

What a Bike Can Teach You

BY MACK BLACK
@ VOL 9 ON MAY 19, 2017

Mack Black from Cycle-Re-Cycle - L'earn a bike: What a bike can teach you

Mack Black is an UX designer, living, working, and biking in Southwest Michigan. She moved to Berrien Berrien Springs in 2016 on a YOLO whim from Washington DC, with a strong desire for living in a place larger than a postage stamp and chicken ownership.

She is a new volunteer at CycleReCycle, a Benton Harbor Non-Profit dedicated to keeping bicycles out of landfills and advocating for bicycling as a preferred mode of transportation. Through their L'Earn A Bike program they teach area youth the art of bicycle maintenance, and Mack continues to be amazed at how much a bike can teach you.

BY VICTORIA LEIPER
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Glasgow Bike Station is the city’s largest bike recycling charity. Their vision is for healthy, green and happy communities where everyone has access to a bicycle. They do this by recycling unwanted bikes, parts and accessories; offering cycle training, bike maintenance training, Fix Your Own Bike sessions twice weekly and a menu of business to business services. In addition, the Bike Station manages and re-distributes the city-wide bike hire scheme Nextbike. To encourage more people onto bikes, the Bike Station also offers a comprehensive programme of outreach projects such as the Bike Station Academy; a training programme for young people who are not in education, employment or training. The ultimate aim of all the Bike Station’s work is to change lives through cycling. 

Victoria Leiper is the Head of Projects and is responsible for managing the Bike Station’s outreach programme.
