Just found out there will be a bicycle made out of bicycles (yes, you read that correctly!) in Martin Place, Sydney over the next month.
The Bike Bike is part of Art and About, a Sydney-centric celebration of creativity that is designed to make us contemplate our environment and sustainable modes of transport in Sydney. At the very least, the installation represents how cycling is a growing trend that is no longer for men in lycra … it is now increasingly popular with Sydney’s chic.
Helmets off to installation artist, Alastair Nicol, for his clever work – I can’t wait to check it out.
Have you seen the giant bike bike? Did it get you thinking about sustainability and alternative modes of transport?
I recently discovered Jelly Bean Bikes, thanks to Daily Addict. Jelly Bean Bikes is a wicked service that lets you totally customize the design of your bike … from colour to size to fixie or free wheels! You can go all minimalist or take your inspiration from an acid trip.
The colour lovers even have a Colour Your Ride Facebook page that gives you early notice about bicycle bargains! … They sure know all about the importance of sharing passion, value and expertise with your online community.
Thanks to Sydney Cycle Chic for the beautiful photo
Last Saturday I joined Sydney Cycle Chic for a super stylish ride through hipster-ville aka Surry Hills. It was more of a social event than exercise (no complaints from me though!) with about 30 fashionistas with fashion bikes.
Other cycle chic kids have already written great blog posts so rather than compete with theirs, I’ll just bundle them altogether for you to read, comment on and get jealous of all the cool bike pics
