Story Riders (program of Center of Southwest Culture)

Story Riders works to empower Indigenous and Latino communities in reconnecting with their natural and cultural heritage while providing practical training in bicycle safety, maintenance, and guided cycle experiences while exploring local stories and spaces. In alignment with popular education praxis, Story Riders’ approach centers participants’ ability to leverage their lived experiences and knowledge in order to make learning spaces and outings a space for deep connection between each other and the land. A program of the Center of Southwest Culture, its goal is to connect participants with the land they live with, along with the cultural traditions connected to it through bicycle outings to nearby forest to learn and reflect on topics such as human dependance on the Rio Grande, climate change, storytelling, and teachings from local elders and artists.
