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.

BY MACK BLACK

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.
