The Artist Edition presents Ezy Ryders: the unexpected story of New York City’s Black motorcycle clubs, a monograph by Cate Dingley. Photographed over five years, Ezy Ryders tails New York City’s Black bikers to bike blessings, charity runs, bikini bike washes, and anniversary parties, highlighting the under-looked culture’s vices and victories. Ten riders share their personal experiences of the MC world, their narration weaving through the photographs.
 
The black and white film photographs pull the reader into a scene that’s usually off-limits to outsiders; one in which the riders find a bond that can be even deeper than blood, a community that will let them defy stereotypes and denounce societal expectations. And the 30-page interview text, edited as a conversation between the ten bikers, examines contentious issues like race, gender, and club politics, with brutal honesty. Essayist, journalist, and advocate Jimmie Briggs writes a timely foreword, and long-time rider in the scene Imir Leveque contributes a “Biker’s Glossary” to clarify the culture’s terminology and traditions.
 
From November 17—December 17, 2021, Cate Dingley & The Artist Edition will be raising funds for the book’s design and printing via a Kickstarter pre-order. The book will be designed by Martin Farran-Lee & Steen Sundland, and it will be printed in Denmark at Narayana Press.
