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.

Adaptive Reinvention

BY ZANA FAULKNER
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

Sometimes it is hard to stay on the path that life has put in front of you; Zana  Faulkner knows this better than most. From horseback riding to martial arts to competative road racing to mountian biking, Zana's journey has been a long and winding one, and not always pleasant. But if you come to a fork in the road, or if the path becomes rocky, or if the upcoming route remains hidden behind a bend, Zana's story stresses the importance of staying on the trail and completing the journey.

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.
