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.
