About Ben Weaver
Ben is a poet, songwriter, letterpress printer/book maker, public speaker and endurance cyclist.
“I create work that breaks down the emotional and systemic structures separating humans from the ability to feel our connections to the greater web of life and each other. The songs and poems I write/perform work to dispel illusions of division. They hold open space for the wisdom that sits within the trees, rivers, rocks, plants and animals to reignite the inherent stories of wildness and mutuality living inside us all.”
About Manny Marquez
It was when Manny was sent on assignment to film the Tour de France for Trek that he fell in love with cycling. Passing endless hours transfixed on the athletes through his lens, he was inspired. When he returned home, Manny immediately took up cycling, shed more than 100 lbs of unwanted weight and is now deeply tied to the bicycle community where he lives in Hood River, Oregon.
