You Are Ironman

@ VOL 105 ON JUL 31, 2013

An Ironman triathlon is one of the hardest endurance races in the world; a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km marathon to finish. Surely, only a super-human athletes with elite endurance could possibly hope to participate in such an event? Wrong; in this presentation, Gueorgui Tcherednitchenko presents the story of a perfectly average guy's adventures in Ironman training, and lessons that he learned from it along the way.

How Riding A Bike Taught Me About Prejudice

@ 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.

Why Madison? Ironman Wisconsin

It brings people from all over the country and world, each pursuing their goal of the Ironman finish line.


Paths Connecting Cities


Advocate at Walk Auckland Andy Smith speaks of the tragic history of the Auckland Harbor Bridge — once planned to include bike and foot paths, but built as a four-lane automobile bridge — and the numerous campaigns that were launched by cyclist and walker groups to implement a connecting path. Pressure lead to an innovative solution: a tube/tunnel suspended from the clip-on just under the bridge, away from traffic, and offering majestic views of the city.



@ VOL 9 ON FEB 25, 2014

Michiel van der Zanden maakt grote 'landschappelijke' schilderijen en kleine werken met losse/geïsoleerde objecten. Het zijn surreële situaties in de alledaagse werkelijkheid... bezienswaardigheden, horecagelegenheden en trekpleisters zoals je die tegenkomt in (Zuid-)Nederland. Hij importeert de wereld van de digitale media in de schilderkunst en vice versa. De serie getiteld 'Re-creatie' is daarom ook letterlijk op te vatten: alle situaties zijn opnieuw opgebouwd in 3D software (Blender). Deze virtuele maquettes vormen zijn schetsmateriaal.


Re-cycling Minimalism

@ VOL 6 ON MAY 23, 2013

Ralf Verheul heeft een passie voor fietsen. Hij waarschuwt ons om niet te vergeten waar fietsen voor staat; met spierkracht op de pedalen. Dit verklaart zijn liefde voor het opknappen van oude racefietsen met een minimum aan onderdelen.


Wearable Technology for All

@ VOL 6 ON OCT 19, 2015

Jensin Wallace relates her trip to Slovenia to collaborate with a man suffering from tetraplegia to create custom smart clothing to assist him on a day to day basis - all controlled by his cell phone! Wow!

Jensin was trained as textile textile designer at the Rhode Island School of Design and experimented with how to make sound and emotions tangible. After getting some experience in the luxury fashion industry, she went back to school and received a Masters of Design focusing in fashion and technology. Currently she works as a sweater technical designer for a high end women's label in NYC.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, November 9th, 2015.

Freedom Cycles

What do you associate freedom with? Antonio Melo has always connected his bicycle with an empowering sense of independence -- the ability to go anywhere and do anything at any time. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Freedom Cycles" from PKN Louisville Vol. 3, he discusses this liberty, and juxtaposes it with his experiences cycling about New York during the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centers.


Save Our Cyclists

Any cyclist in the city will tell you, it can be a dangerous place to ride.  Which is why, in today's Presentation of the Day, "Save our Cyclists" from PKN Bangkok Vol. 8, Khun Panx talks about her campaign to keep cyclists safe on the streets. The Save our Cyclists movement focuses on communicating street safety tips to riders, promoting accident prevention, and emphasizes the role of drivers in keeping the streets safe. 


Summer is a time for PK!

Hello Everyone!   This summer is going to be a hot one, we all know it will be and I am most likely not the only one who will quickly become sick of seeing social media state the obvious :)  This summer is also going to be a busy time for ATL's PechaKucha Night with three events crammed into this one season!   MAY 18th, VOL. 22 : We are coming back to our original home at Octane Coffee's Westside location.  Music, coffee, beer and delicious mixed drinks, and (naturally) compelling presentations!   June 8th, VOL. 22 1/2 : This is a special event for us, one that sees ATL PKN teaming up with the first Atlanta Cycling Festival!  Use your pedal-power to join us for this bicycle-themed PKN!  This one is BYOLC as seating is limited (bring your own lawn chair).  TBD, VOL. 23 : We have yet to select a date but we DO know it will be sometime in August.  Keep your eyes peeled :D Finally, we are looking for a few fine folks to help us organize future PKNs; to help contact potential presenters, assist day-of, provide photography services, etc.  If you have some spare time, enjoy the PK movement and would like to be a part of it, shoot us an email introduction- See you soon and thank you for your continued support in PechaKucha! { KW }


Cycling is the New Black

Cycling isn't back in style -- it never left.  Richard Hayman describes his two passions: cycling and architecture. They may seem like two different ideas, but they have more similarities between them then people may think. In "Cycling is the New Black" from PKN Christchurch Vol. 18, Richard talks in more detail about the relationship between cycles and architecture and how both are a series of different parts that join together to make a beautiful whole. 


Cycling Through Life: A Unicorn in Motion

"As you all know, biking is a powerful tool -- a magical tool -- and we use it here within the Black community to create change." Zahra Alabanza describes herself as a magical being: a unicorn. In "Cycling Through Life: A Unicorn in Motion" from PKN Atlanta Vol. 22 1/2 She goes into depth on what exactly this means, how she has recruited her nephews into being unicorns, and how being a unicorn has helped to bring bicycling to her family, friends, and community.  


Sotaro Fujio

Do you enjoy cycling? If not, maybe Sotaro Fujio's presentation at PechaKucha Night Vol. 117 (Wednesday, September 24) will inspire to give it a go.


Adventures through Cycling

“You can’t plan an adventure, but you can live in a way that allows for adventure. Embrace the unknown, be ready to take a big risk, and when everything goes wrong remember there was a reason you started it — that’s your adventure.” Brothers James Nord and Dylan Nord grew up going on adventures, riding bikes, building forts, and playing pretend. A few decades later they were still riding bikes, racing them now, but had lost that sense of adventure and child-like delight of their youth. In “Adventures in Cycling” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 1 we see their solution — deux north — was to get together with a bunch of friends, go on adventures again, embrace the unknown, and film it the whole way.


Knickerbocker Cycling in Christchurch

On the 1892 Adalanta Cycle Club: "It's special to me because it was a group of all women cyclists that decided to get together to go on picnics, to go one day trips, and just be all around awesome in their knickerbockers." From Knickerbocker Cycling in Christchurch, from Christchurch Vol. 23,  Catarina Gutierrez shares her passion as an everyday cyclist as she explores a city steeped in bicycle culture and history. Prior to landing in Christchurch, she's lived and pedaled in popular bike cities such as Brooklyn, NY and Portland, OR. In addition to founding the social bicycles club "CycleCHCH", Gutierrez volunteers at RAD Bikes. These days you can find her cruising around Christchurch on a bubblegum pink Morrison step-through and in a bright, neon helmet covered in stickers.
