You Are Ironman

BY GUEORGUI TCHEREDNITCHENKO
@ 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

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.

Paths Connecting Cities

BY ANDY SMITH
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

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.

Re-creatie

BY MICHIEL VAN DER ZANDEN
@ 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.

Tussen Steden

BY YORIT KLUITMAN
@ VOL 6 ON MAY 23, 2013

In two years Yorit Kluitman cycles across all of the 418 Dutch municipalities. During this journey he records and maps out the characteristics of the open and arranged spaces which separates Dutch villages, cities and regions. Kluitman's motive is his fascination for the, from a bicycle riders perspective very well seen, organized structure of space and seemingly two dimensional world surrounding the urban areas of Holland.

PKN Gisborne in the News

As we mentioned last week, PechaKucha Night in Gisborne Vol. 5 was held this past Friday and organizer Pene Walsh was hoping to donate as much of the entry fee as possible to disaster relief in Christchurch. Some very good news: "The venue was sponsored, cutting our overheads dramatically, so we were able to give all donations taken as door fee to the Christchurch Earthquake appeal -- NZ$1200.00 -- thanks Gisborne!" We're including scans of a few articles -- here's more from Pene:The Gisborne Herald article (in 2 parts) came out the night before PK. Pippa Coom talked about the international movement of ‘Frocks on Bikes’ -- Gisborne PechaKucha co-organiser Sarah Cleave was also instrumental in organizing “Nice Ride,” a cycling event that took place the day after PechaKucha Night. She is a busy person. Also in 2 parts is a feature in the Gisborne Herald Weekender about Sarah.We'll also have a post up shortly with a few photos from PKN Gisborne Vol. 5.

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.

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.

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.
