What kind of social, cultural, and/or political impact do you want to make through biking? Partnering with Detroit East Side Riders, we explore how bikes can be tools that facilitate interaction. We will explore an aspect of the encounter between cyclists and the city through a demo on bike safety, and discuss the concept of bicycle justice. We will question the scale and type of interactions that biking can facilitate and loosely prototype ideas in small groups. Participants will walk away with a grounded understanding of bike safety and new ideas on how to activate bikes as media.
